Corning Museum of Glass

There’s something for everyone at The Corning Museum of Glass! Watch live, narrated, glassmaking demonstrations and see master glassblowers create stunning pieces before your eyes.

The only thing better than watching glassmaking is trying it yourself. Make Your Own Glass souvenir for a small fee.  Opportunities exist for all ages. For a more intensive experience, you can take a one-day, weekend, or multiple-week course in our glassmaking school, The Studio, which offers year-round courses in all levels of glassmaking.

Explore the world’s largest collection of glass, showcasing 3,500 years of glassmaking history, and get hands-on with the science of glass at Do It! stations in the Innovation Center. The  new Contemporary Art + Design Gallery is the world’s largest space dedicated to the display of contemporary art and design in glass. The gallery features a sophisticated light-filtering system using diffusing roof skylights, providing the majority of the lighting required to view the art.

Kids and teens, 17 and under are free! Discounts of 15% for Students, 55+, Military, AAA/CAA.

To purchase your own glass treasures, visit The Shops, featuring a dazzling array of glass-related products from around the world, from handmade artist glass to jewelry to housewares.
