Enjoy the Corning Museum of Glass. This amazing museum offers many exhibits covering the history of glass from its very beginnings through contemporary art. Beautiful examples of both daily use and decorative glass can be seen in their galleries. While there your group can see live demonstrations of glass blowing and enjoy lunch in the cafe. Several meal options are available.
Smaller groups may also be able to participate in one of the many "Make your own glass" projects. Click here for further information.
Upstate New York's only Smithsonian Affiliate, The Rockwell Museum boasts a world-class collection of Western and contemporary Native American Art, and other exhibits focusing on "Art About America" as it continues to explore the people, land, and ideas that have shaped our country.
The Glass Museum and Rockwell do offer package tickets allowing you to view both museums.
