If you are in Corning , NY area then this is a must visit place. Have at least half a day to cover the museum and take part in make your own glass events. Kids will really love the place!

Huge gift shop that occupies first floor. Only one demo available and mostly overcrowded. It was a rainy day and the outdoor tent was a wash as well.

Wonderful displays of glass, both old and new, both routine use and artistic. Artist in residence Deborah (Blown Away show winner) put on a terrific display of art work and was very giving of her time to fans. Very nice shop on premises.
