There is no other word I can use to better describe the Corning Glass Museum. WOW! Just, “WOW!” That is the word I uttered time and time again as we made our way through the museum. Between the brand new 100,000 square foot, 64 million dollar extraordinary contemporary art wing of the museum to the ongoing glass blowing demostrations in their new state of the art amphitheater, it was all fantastic!
We we were so enthralled with everything we saw that we spent 7-1/2 hours there soaking it all in. We even returned to one of the glass blowing demonstrations again at the end of the day.
From Dale Chihualy to Louis Tiffany, and all of the best glass artists in between, the museum houses the most extensive and incredible collection of art glass glass in the world. The glass pieces on display span almost 2,000 years.
The 500-seat glass blowing amphitheater and more intimate glass blowing studio each house the most modern and top-quality furnaces in existence.
It just doesn’t get any better than this!
Stunning! I can only imagine how much Mr. Cooked Glass enjoyed this.
Thoroughly! He was definitely in his element in Corning!
