Museums can become tiresome, same ol' same ol'. Not the Corning Glass Museum. Beautiful modern (glass) architecture, attractive displays showcasing the beauty of glass--from stained glass to paperweights to glass art sculptures, the Corning Glass Museum is lively in its beauty and in its demonstrations of glass-making. Out-of-the-way in Ithaca, New York, I had wanted to visit for 20 years... More

I grew up "down the road" and had not been here in ages. We realized that we did not allot enough time to do everything. The demonstrations will occupy the kids, while the "history of glass" and the "contemporary glass museum" will enthrall the adults. The two glass blowing demonstrations caught my wife's eye, and she enjoyed both. If you... More
