Don’t let the shattering reputation of glass steer you and your family away from a museum filled with hands-on glass exhibits. The Corning Museum of Glass is as kid-friendly as it is spectacular, fun, and educational–and admittance is free for ages 17 and under!
The Corning Museum is dedicated to telling the story of glass–using every sensual experience available to convey its importance in art, history, culture, technology, science, craft and design, while making it accessible to all ages and walks of life.
Stand beside a towering wall of casserole dishes, learn how fiber optics play a key role in the future of technology, see how a flame can mold glass into any shape or form, or visit during studio hours and make your own glass designs.
Located in the Finger Lakes outside of historic downtown Corning, (just off of exit 46 on I-86 in Corning, NY), the museum offers live glassblowing demonstrations, hands-on studio glassmaking, as well as a mobile web app called GlassApp that guests can access when they connect to the museum’s free WiFi.
FingerLakes.com is your complete guide to the entire Finger Lakes region of New York State--from wine trails to hiking trails and fishing to skiing.
