“Choose Your Activity Well...”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

Decide how involved you'd like to be in the creation of your object when it comes to taking classes. The flower making is pretty hands on, as are the glass fusing workshops. The glassblowing...all you're doing is blowing.

With different glass working techniques available it is great to check out the images of finished products that appeal to you, but also check out our website for more images and videos of some of the processes. Thanks for your visit and we hope you like your hand-made treasure!

“Holiday Party at the Museum!”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

BIG! They have expanded since our last visit and are expanding again still! The company had the entire museum available to us as well as the CMoG catering services. Plenty of excellent food!

“Cooler than you Think!”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

We visited this museum with our 3 children a couple of years ago and they seem to have added even more programs since then. They have live glass blowing demonstrations, opportunities to blow your own glass, glass sandblasting for the kids, scavenger hunts and more. We had a blast here and we came home with our own unique, handmade glass souvenirs. This place is definitely worth a visit!

Thank you for taking the time to remember your visit to Corning. We are always finding new ways to show glass in a new light to a wide range of audiences - including families! It sounds like you made great memories during your trip and perhaps have started your own glass collection. We hope to see you again soon!

“Fantastic art”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

The way glass is molded into art pieces is truly spellbinding. We easily spent more than an hour marveling at the art pieces in display. There was a live show on how glass show pieces are made and were given away to lucky people in audience at the end of the show.

Thank you for your review! It looks like you were here during out Glass Harvest season and perhaps went home with a Glass Pumpkin? We hope you learned about the art, history, and science of glass through our galleries and demonstrations. Thanks again for taking the time to write a review!
