Corning Museum of Glass, located in Finger Lakes region, is a not-for-profit institution promoting glass art through nearly 50,000 pieces that tell the story of over 3500 years of history in glass-working.
Visitors can admire objects, jewelries and artworks and find out how versatile the glass is. The interior of the museum has been created in such a way that you can understand that ordinary glass has had a major role in areas such as electricity, astronomy, household, etc. The museum has three pavilions: Contemporary Art, Design Galleries and Innovation Center. They are interconnected by a bridge of about 91 m/ 300 feet.
Every day you can witness glass-work demonstrations, and if you organize your visit in advance, you can try your hand at making glass thanks to ”Make your Own Glass” sessions for beginners. At the end of the tour you can buy a glass souvenir. The offer is unlimited both in diversity and in price.
