Summer is … walks outside, swimming pools, picnics, warm days, and The Corning Museum of Glass. Yes, The Corning Museum of Glass is a great place to add to your list of summer plans. We’ve compiled a list of the top 10 reasons to visit the Museum this summer:
10: Longer days mean there’s more natural daylight flooding the Contemporary Art + Design Galleries. The natural lighting brings out the best in the glass on display.
9: The Revealing the Invisible exhibition at the Rakow Research Library tells the story of the exploration of the microscopic world from the 1600s through the 1800s. And you can take a #cellfie with the Be Microscopic interactive.
7: Visit the Museum Shops to find items you can use to beautify your patio or deck – wind chimes, outdoor serving dishes, candle holders, and more.
6: Kids and teens (17 and under) visiting the Museum always receive FREE admission!
5: We are open until 8 pm every night all summer long. Visit after work and have plenty of time to explore your favorite galleries, or discover something new.
3: If you are visiting later in the day, you won’t want to miss the Late Show – a 75-minute glassmaking demo where our gaffers crank up the creativity to 11. And if you’re lucky, you might be the recipient of the Late Show giveaway.
And the number one thing to do at CMoG this summer …
Speaking of sea creatures, you definitely don’t want to miss the Fragile Legacy exhibition. You will be wowed by the more than 70 glass models of sea creatures made by Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
