The Corning Museum of Glass

At The Corning Museum of Glass, glass isn't just for looking at or looking through. At this museum, you can explore, research, touch, work with, and interact with glass. You can also be your own glass designer! Visitors of all ages can experience live glassmaking demos, explore 35 centuries of glass art and history, and even make their own glass!

Experience the amazing properties of glass! See live, narrated hot glassmaking demonstrations all day, every day at the Hot Glass Show. Watch flameworkers turn simple glass rods into delicate figurines at the torch at Flameworking Demos, and at Glassbreaking Demos, see how different types of glass shatter. All shows and demos are included in the price of admission.

Explore more than 35 centuries of glass art, history, and science. Discover pieces from ancient Egypt, see delicate Venetian glass, and study breathtaking contemporary pieces. Get hands-on with glass in the Innovation Center with interactive exhibits that tell the story of the science and technology of glass. Find a glass treasure for your home in the 18,000 square-foot GlassMarket, where you can purchase pieces from around the world.

Make Your Own Glass

You don’t have to be a professional artist to sculpt a beautiful glass flower out of glass, form a glass bead to wear on a necklace, or make a holiday ornament to decorate your Christmas tree.  Book a 40-minute Make Your Own Glass experience at The Corning Museum of Glass, and you can do all this and more, with the help of professional glassmakers who walk you through every step of the way.

The Museum offers projects for all ages (as young as preschool), and it’s a great way to enhance your tour of the 35 centuries of glass artistry on display at the Museum. Make Your Own Glass experiences are available seven days a week, all year round. There are numerous projects to choose from all year long, as well as seasonal projects like glass pumpkins in the fall, glass snowmen in the winter, and glass heart paperweights and pendants around Valentine’s Day.

Want to spend a day or weekend exploring glassmaking? More intensive experiences are available in the fall and spring in the form of one-day and weekend workshops at the Museum’s glassmaking school, The Studio.

For all glassmaking experiences and classes, it’s recommended that you book ahead at
