They have different demonstrations throughout the day and a decent cafe. I was in a bit of a rush when I went, but could have easily spent a few hours there. Are you looking for something else to do in the area too?

I haven't done this, but for a couple of dollars more you can purchase a combined ticket with the Rockwell Museum of Western Art.

What I have done on separate occasions, if you don't mind driving out of Corning, is the Wings of Eagles Discovery Center. This is right off of 86. We saw the WWII planes on our way to Western NY and stopped by on our way back a few weeks ago. http://www.wingsofeagles.com/

Another 15 minutes form there is Elmira, NY, if you're interested in Mark Twain history. I've only been to the cemetery, but will stop by again soon to visit the area. http://www.marktwaincountry.com/mark-twain

Yes, you can get tickets for both CMOG and the Rockwell Museum of Western Art for $20 each, or $18.25 each with AAA or senior discount. There are tons of shoppes and restaurants in the Gaffer District too: http://www.gafferdistrict.com/. You won't have any trouble making a day of it!

IMO, Rockwell Museum of Western Art is a must see when visiting Corning NY...

I have been to the CMoG twice, now, each time it was 2 adults.

I don't know how much you like art, but I think that it's really worth the time to spend in the art exhibits in the CMoG - so many people seem to rush through to get to the demonstrations, but I think that taking some time to really appreciate the artistry there is worthwhile. Some of the pieces are beautifully lit and really show what can be done with glass.

The historic part wasn't quite as interesting for me, but could easily take a up a whole bunch of time. Even for me there were some very interesting parts, though.

One time I went I actually did the glass-blowing - made an ornament - it still sits pride-of-place in our living room as something beautiful that was made by us. A truly meaningful "souvenir".
