Be sure to buy your tickets on line ahead of your visit as we were turned away due to maximum capacity limit for the day! Luckily, we were spending the night in Corning so we were able to secure... more »
The Museum itself is not the issue. This review is solely to save people that don't want a gestapo style Covid police experiance. The place is not cheap. So I figured why not save at few people... more »
We had an absolutely fabulous experience taking our pumpkin glass blowing class. The staff was extremely helpful, friendly, and safety focused. They have a limited class size, so reservations are recommended. The price for the experience of blowing your own glass was very reasonable. They offered shipping (since it has to cool overnight). We received our pieces extremely well wrapped in two days. Their gift shop was so fun to shop at as well. They had a wide range of prices and styles. I highly recommend.
So we visited the museum during the summer 2019. It is a small museum but if your a fan of this "glass art" you'll feel at home here. All in all, we enjoyed the experience. That being said we bought a lot of souvenirs including a glass water bottle with a rubber protection/casing. Unfortunately the top of the bottle accidentally broke when I twisted the cap. But the review is about the museum right? It gets better from here, though I did not see any customer support from their contact list, I still sent an email to their info section ( just to try my luck), and guess WHAT?? They replied and they asked for my contact details so they can send me another bottle (see pic, it just arrived today). Amazing! KUDOS! Corning Museum of Glass. Shout out for Russell and Stephanie, thanks! P. S. My family and I left the museum full and satisfied coz the food was great!
