Details

In the 1860s, Elias Hungerford believed Corning`s railroad and Erie Canal transportation, together with local supplies of coal and sand, could foster a glass industry that would put his town on the map. At the Corning Museum of Glass, visitors can experience the art, history and science of glass through live hot glassmaking demonstrations, Make Your Own Glass classes, hands-on glass technology exhibits and the world`s largest collection of glass objects spanning 3,500 years.
