“Big City Museum”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Love going to this BIG city museum in a small city surrounding! Corning is very lucky to have this top notch museum in their town! You have to travel to say... New York City to see such art!

“An excellent stop when in the area.”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

As part of a daytrip to Corning, we went to the Rockwell Museum and were pleasantly surprised by the number of pieces on display. It was an enjoyable time spent in this unique museum.

“Nice with Combo ticket package with CMOG”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Nicely arranged & lay out of museum on 3 floors. Great variety of old & new artists, paint, sculture, digital photography. Children did a scavenger hunt on all 3 floors which made them enjoy the experience more. Recommend buying the combo ticket package with Corning Museum of Glass. Can easily do both museums in one day. Free shuttle between museums also. Love the old western theme throughout the museum.

Reviewed November 9, 2012

I have gone several times with various friends of many ages. Always find something new to spark my interest. A very young friend (7) liked the scavenger hunt they offered.

“A surprise!”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

We only went to this museum because we were offered a combo ticket at the Corning Museum. But it was a great little gem of a museum! They had an amazing collection of Clyde Aspevig paintings.
