Corning Museum of Glass

A museum full of notoriously fragile objects may seem like an odd place to bring your family, but don’t let the thought of kids and glass in close proximity to each other scare you away. The Corning Museum of Glass is a kid-friendly place that offers a variety of sights and activities that will entertain the entire family.

Located an hour and a half outside of Rochester, the museum opened in 1951 and now has a collection of more than 45,000 objects. Once you’ve perused the museum’s collection of artifacts from all eras and cultures, try your own hand at glassmaking. The museum offers a variety of options, and there’s an activity suitable and safe for any age. You can also check out how the pros do it at the live glassmaking demonstrations. Held throughout the day, these 15-20 minute shows give you an up-close look at things like flame working and glassblowing. Entrance to the shows is included in the cost of admission.
