This fabulous museum is likely to be enjoyable by everyone who visits. There's an arts side to it, a science side, history and entertaining demonstrations.
We were passing through Corning and only had about 2 hours for our visit, so we rushed through. But we were able to see fabulous pieces of glass, a couple of demonstrations and spend a few minutes at the end in the excellent store.
The demonstration we enjoyed most was the hot glass blowing. An experienced glassblower made a magnificent bowl in under 15 minutes.
For those interested in the arts, there are large and small pieces of glass sculpture, utilitarian pieces and the expected beautiful work of Tiffany and Chihuly. If you're interested in architecture, there are displays of glass used for windows in houses by Frank Lloyd Wright. There are displays of the history of glass, and pieces of early glasswork and vessels. And there's plenty to keep science buffs interested as well. Don't miss the periscope in the science area, or the mirror that gives you an upside down image of yourself.
Photography (without flash) is allowed, so bring your camera.
If at all possible, try to space your visit out over a couple of days, or it's guaranteed you'll miss a lot. We felt fortunate to see what we did, but we felt rushed in the 2 hours we'd allotted to visit.
