The Corning Museum of Glass is one of the best museums that we have ever visited. We spent 5 hours at the museum and still didn't see everything. There are ongoing demonstrations and numerous displays that help you understand the history of glass making from ancient times to the present day. We were there on a Saturday and even though...

We bought a senior combo 2-day ticket for the Rockwell Museum of Art and the CMOG. For us, we could have spent the better part of the 2-days just in the CMOG. I didn't really know what to expect, and I was most impressed. Summer finds the CMOG (and the Rockwell) open from 9 AM to 8 PM. Start with... More

EXCELLENT. We spent over 4 hours here and it was not enough. Great demonstrations. We all learned a lot. Amazing history and special exhibits on glass. So much to see. Only complaint is not sufficient staff "just around" to answer questions. Wish we lived nearby to return often.

There is literally something for everyone in the family, no matter what the age. Try your hand at glassmaking or watch the professionals, lots of hands-on activities. Museum objects range from thousands of years old with Roman and Egyptian pieces, to 21st contemporary masterpieces. You can do a quick tour within a few hours or take your time and spend... More

We went here because of the forcasted rain. Not great for elementary aged kids. Demonstrations were best part for them. Relatively short but informative.

I was not expecting to experience such a good time at this interesting venue. The first impression was surprise at the enormity. There are pods where you can experience live demonstrating running at hourly intervals. The Contemporary Art museum is a must see to experience priceless artifacts. Some you have to look closely to determine it is al made of... More

Some much to see and absorb. Saw two of the shows and walked a great deal of the exhibits. Needed to have allowed more time. Huge changes since the last time I had been there. Would like to have designed a piece of glass. The special exhibit of the marine animals made in the 1880's was outstanding.

The Museum was great, but we only got to see 1/2 of the museum in a day, because we made our own glass. You need more than 1 day if you want to see the whole museum, but that's only if you are going to make glass too. The gift shop was nice and amusing at the same time, because... More

My daughter and I went here together. It was a beautiful drive down. Parking was a breeze and a shuttle bus took. Us from the parkinglot to the museum door. We enjoyed the museum for 3 hours. We watched someof the demonstrations. It was very interesting! We made our way to the studio and made a glass bead necklace. Got... More
