Celebrate the harvest in a unique and memorable way this autumn at The Corning Museum of Glass.
Changing leaves are transforming the landscape and the smell of autumn fills the air. At the Museum, we celebrate this transition with our annual glass pumpkin harvest. Join us in welcoming the new season!
You’ve seen big pumpkins, but never one this big made of glass! Made by our Museum glassmakers, the giant pumpkin, which measures 97 inches (more than 8 feet) in circumference and weighs in at 70 pounds, is a popular part of our Fall Glass Harvest celebration. Browse The Shops to pick your perfect pumpkin to take home!
Try your hand at making your own glass pumpkin. Our artists will help you blow a pumpkin sculpture or flamework a pumpkin pendant. This experience is a seasonal favorite, so book early.
