Corning Museum of Glass, Corning NY

If you ever find yourself in the vicinity of Corning New York, check out the World Famous glass museum. The museum features multiple exhibits of functional, artistic, industrial, and historic glass.

Here’s a few examples we saw during our self tour, which took us about 4 hours. Entry is reasonable and you can wander about the place at will.

Early Terra Cotta relief.

Ancient (from the exhibit 35 centuries of glass).

Artistic, from the stunning, to the bizarre.

There are many daily demonstrations of the art & science of glass blowing and manufacture.

And some absolutely gorgeous stained glass.

There are plenty of hands on, fun, and humorous things too.

It’s a great place to spend a day.

    Yes, it’s a great place indeed. We were there a few years ago (back in the Airstream days) and enjoyed it immensely. Hoping for a two- to three-month TC outing in 2016 to the southwest, probably in the late summer. Any interest?
