“Corning Glass”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

What a great museum. It included ancient glass up to and including modern day pieces. There were exhibits and hands on classes you could take. A gift shop at the end of thr tour included items made there and purchased from other companies.

Thank you for your review. We hope you had time to watch many of the demonstrations as well as make your own glass. Perhaps a handmade pumpkin? Thanks again!

“Amazing”
Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

Was sceptical about going to the museum. Boy was I wrong! The place is amazing, very educational. I learned so many interesting facts about the glass industry.
The gift shop is overpriced though...

“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?!
