We really enjoyed our time at the museum. Make sure you check out the demonstrations !! Being a car guy I was really intrigued about how they made windshields and curved glass in the 1920's. Would go again....

Made a trip out to Coring NY to the Glass Museum. For a museum of "glass" art/history it was interesting. The museum is very well laid out and live shows throughout the day demonstrating glass blowing were fun to see. Who knew there was that...More

Great for a visit in wet or dry weather. Interesting demonstrations, and good to inspect glass work through the ages. We travelled from the UK, Sunderland and this was home of Pyrex Europe in the 80's and a kind of memory trip for wife whose...More
Plan to spend at least several hours here to take in the breadth and depth of the collection and the demonstrations. If you like the technical side, it's there. If your bent is artistic, it's there in spades. Don't overlook the Carder gallery, which is...More
