AAA Editor Notes

The Corning Museum of Glass, off I-86 exit 46 following signs to 1 Museum Way, is home to one of the world's most comprehensive and largest glass collections, spanning 35 centuries of glassmaking. Galleries showcase everything from large-scale contemporary sculpture to ancient Egyptian glass and delicate Venetian glass. Hands-on exhibits explain the science of glass at Do it! stations in the Innovations Center. The Hot Glass Show presents narrated glassblowing demonstrations by master glassblowers; shows run continuously throughout the day. An amphitheater offers 360-degree views of the glassmaking process. Visitors also can watch live flame-working, glassbreaking and optical fiber demonstrations. Hands-on “Make Your Own Glass” experiences are offered for a fee at The Studio. Food is available.
