Very disappointed!!! Was basically kicked out of the "FAMILY" activity room, where u make your own glass project, because my 2 year old son wouldn't wear his safety glasses, even though we were making a family mobile, only 1 other family was in there with us and he wasn't facing the table where the glass was, I told the guy he could take all of the cutting tools and we'd just use what was on the table, but it was his way or no way, our only other choice was to push my 2 year old son on the other side of the roped off area by himself, which is completely crazy!! And I'd hope he wouldn't do that to his own kid!!! I feel if this is that big of a problem there should be a age limit or something stating rules!! It really was disappointing for a 2.5 hr trip with 5 kids who thought they were going to make their own Lil glass creation!!! WON'T BE RETURNING!!! The only reason I gave it 2 stars was because the customer service lady of the main building was very nice and they did have other interesting shows. But Kurt should be fired!!

We stopped in Corning, NY as part of a trip across the state. We planned to see the Corning Museum of Glass as something to do to break up the trip. There was a flaw in this plan. We didn't know how wonderful and interesting this place would be and we wanted more time there than we had. We all loved it. The museum is beautiful. Exceptionally well done and served by a warm, kind staff. We tried to do most of the place as time allowed. We started with the hands-on studio. This is a fun event for family (tip: reserve this ahead of time if you are interested). We all made little glass pieces. I made a blown xmas ornament. We expect them to arrive any day now - they ship them the next day as they are extremely hot and need to cool slowly. Next, we watched a glass blowing demo over in the museum. It was relaxing and educational. The "gaffer" made a gorgeous pitcher. Then, they had us pull out our entry tickets and they gave away a similar hand-made piece made from the day before! We made our way through the historical section for a while. If you like glass, art, and history, this area is the motherlode. If was almost overwhelming. Tons of history and examples. There was also a contemporary art glass area that was one amazing art piece after another. For me, the most interesting part was the section on what I'll call "daily interaction with glass". There were a number of great exhibits about practical use of glass (bottles, windshields, optics, mirrors, plate/flat glass, fiber optic cable, etc) and what it took to develop it and how it is used. This was fascinating to me. The exhibits were generally genius in their presentation. My favorite might be the gigantic failed/cracked telescope mirror. Or perhaps fiber optic (who knew what is behind something we use unknowingly every day). There is much to see and learn. On the way out, we even got a nice little deal on some drinking glasses in the gift shop. It's difficult to come up with any negatives on this place. We had such a nice time there. Highly recommended!

A great place to see, if you can you should spend the day here, there's so much to see and do. may need a days see everything. but I visited with a group of about 10 or 15 of us, maybe about 3 years ago or so. We where treated very good by the staff there.

This was our 2nd visit over the years. And again we loved it. There are so many hands on exhibits and a few shows, May favorite is the "Breaking Glass" show. There is always something new to discover. Here are some tips: Order tickets online and make reservations for the Making Glass experience. Glass blown pieces need time in the oven to be finished and will be picked up the next day. Also inspect the pieces we had 2 broken items. Parking is free and they offer military discounts. This museum can get busy and if you do not want to wait in line at the cafe you need to plan accordingly. Your ticket let's you reenter the museum so you could leave for lunch and come back.

Be sure to go on the Hidden Treasures Tour! It makes the visit so much more interesting! We had a tour with Ann Congdon and it was a great tour! Her enthusiasm for sharing her knowledge was what made our visit absolutely perfect! After everything she shared with us, we could have spent DAYS exploring the museum! Thank you!

THE STIMULUS OF COLD NAKED GLASS CHANGES DRAMATICALLY WHEN IT IS HEATED UP: THE SUBSEQUENT CREATION OF SOMETHING EXTREMELY BEAUTIFUL SEEMS SEMIAUTOMATIC BUT IT TAKES GREAT TALENT IF NOT GENIUS... FROM JAMES MICHAEL AND VIVIANNE CHAPESKIE

Information on the Google website is incorrect. The museum opened in 1951. Thank you.

Dear Corning Museum of Glass: I was greatly surprised and pleased to learn you that you recognized and appreciated my U.S. Navy veteran's status by welcoming my family and I into your facility at no cost. Thank You! Your "World Class facility and the Staff" were absolutely amazing and a pleasure to experience. My best regards..... and again, Thank You. -- Steve Mantor
