This museum was a real find. Passing through on the long drive between New York City and Niagra Falls, my expectations weren't high. However this was a really interesting experience with great interactive displays and demonstrations.
My 4 year old son loved having the opportunity to help make a glass holiday ornament - including blowing through the tube. The session lasted 20 minutes and was busy enough to keep his attention throughout. A word of warning - although finished items can be posted within the US or Canada - the museum won't send to other international addresses. We had to go back and collect the finished item the next day.
The demonstration on how to smash glass was good fun - and there were some good exhibits on the history of glass, refraction and the work that goes into meeting new technological challenges.
The price was a little expensive - although it did allow us to visit on a second day.
