Special Glass Demos

Special Glass Demos

We love to tell the story of glass at The Corning Museum of Glass. And sometimes, the best way to tell a story is to show it. Visitors have their choice of nearly 20 glass demonstrations on a variety of topics every day. These live, narrated demos are designed to be interactive and constantly change based on the audience interactions that happen during these special, but informal times. Don't miss a full schedule of demonstrations that cover everything from glassblowing and flameworking to glass breaking and fiber optics.

All demos, dates, and times are subject to change without notice.
