Corning Museum of Glass
The Corning Museum of Glass, located in upstate New York, presents the history of glassmaking through its galleries, workshops, and live demonstrations. Known for its stunning collection of more than 45,000 pieces—with objects dating back to the 15th century BC—the museum offers visitors a fresh perspective on glass over millennia.

The Basics

Founded in 1951, the Corning Museum of Glass showcases the artistry, history, and science of glass. The museum includes works representing historical practices and celebrates the technological advances that have impacted modern glass production. Check out the Contemporary Art + Design Wing to discover how glass is used in design, and stop by the demo room for more hands-on fun: the museum’s Hot Glass Demos are a great way to discover how artisans make—and manipulate—glass, and the glass breaking and flameworking demos are a hit too. You can also book a class to learn about glassmaking fundamentals.

Some multi-day tours of the Niagara region from Boston include a stop at the museum.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Corning Museum of Glass is a must for art lovers, especially those interested in glassmaking, and families with children.
  • To avoid waiting in entry lines, purchase admission tickets in advance online.
  • Kids ages 17 years old and younger are admitted for free. Adult admission is good for two consecutive days.
  • There is free Wi-Fi throughout most areas of the museum’s campus.
  • The museum is accessible to wheelchairs, and free wheelchairs are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

How to Get There
The museum is located in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York, about a 5-hour drive from New York City. Bus service runs daily from Manhattan’s Port Authority Bus Terminal; take the ShortLine bus to the Corning Transportation Center.

When to Get There

The museum is open from 9am to 5pm September through May, and until 8pm in summer. It is closed on New Year’s Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day.

The Science of Glass

The museum’s Optical Fiber Demo is essential for kids and families interested in physics, optics, and communications technology. In the 15-minute demo, you learn about the role glass plays in current technology while transmitting digital information across the globe. Also discover how glass carries light, and enjoy a discussion in the Glass Innovation Center. The demo is included in the price of admission.
