  • The building is gorgeous! It was definitely a good learning experience about glass. The art work on display is mesmerizing and awesome. The food is surprisingly really good at the cafe! Definitely recommend to come and spend a few hours learning about glass and seeing some amazing art work
  • The Corning Museum of Glass is the jewel of this area. It has survived flood waters and continues to shine into the future. Come here if you need inspiration and take a trip to the local Rockwell museum while you're at it. It's just down the street. If you're feeling hungry after your visits, stop at any local restaurant in the gaffer district and fulfill your day with a nice meal and good company.
