This was very cool and I enjoyed the contemporary Art & Design Gallery the best. There is so much to see, it is almost too much. Two hours was plenty of time for me, but very interesting nonetheless.

You can spend days in this extensive museum about glass. The new Contemporary Art & Design wing offers art and architectural interests. We visited to see the Tiffany Mosaic exhibit. But the regular collection, glass blowing and other permanent exhibits are worth the stop

The Corning Glass Museum was very interesting. I noticed little children were very bored. The gift shop was very nice and had more than items for sale than you would think. We spent 2 half-days at the museum and enjoyed the experience.
