“Wish we had more time”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

There is so much here to see that 1/2 day was just not enough. we could have spent 1/2 day in the huge wonderful gift shop, alone. There are many great exhibits with live glass craftsman that show and explain the many uses of glass, both artistic as well as technological. For example the explanation of fiber optic glass cables was way over my head. We intend to visit again soon.

Thanks for the visit and review. We hope you check out some area accomodations that include museum admission within their overnight stay so that you can leverage your admission. Did you know that your admission was valid for 2 consecutive days?!

“Fantastic Museum”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

The Museum of Glass in Corning is an amazing collection of exhibits and presentations involving the history and use of glass. Glassblowing demos were pretty cool, as was the presentation on fiber optics. The museum is very child-friendly, and there is lots to see there. Admission is very reasonable.

Thanks for the review. Not every show has a raffle, so those pieces are pretty great treasures for those that have the Glass Luck! Thanks again!

“One of the best small museums ever!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Heard about it for years, but you have to 1) already be in the general vicinity; or 2) intend it as a destination. I suggest the second option. The museum is a gem, has beautiful art glass and fascinating historical exhibits. We wandered in during the Memorial Day weekend and spent several hours enjoying the exhibits. As a bonus, we found the city of Corning in full Glass Festival Mode, with a fab street fair on the weekend. If you are the least bit into gift shops, they have a great one . . . for kids and aficianados alike. Having just been in Venice, Italy last summer, it was an interesting take on cultural differences regarding industry and art.

Thank you for visiting! It sounds like you were here during Glass Fest, a celebration of the fire arts! This is EVERY Memorial Day weekend and we look forward to welcoming guests to the city and our museum. The Southern Finger Lakes is a great destination in Upstate New York. We hope to see you again!
