The Corning Museum of Glass

About The Corning Museum of Glass

Founded in 1951 by Corning Glass Works (now Corning Incorporated) as a gift to the nation for the company’s 100th anniversary, The Corning Museum of Glass is a not-for-profit museum dedicated to telling the story of a single material: glass.

The concept seems so simple. How much can you say about glass? Actually, quite a lot. Glass is a versatile, ancient material that is still being explored and understood by artists, scientists, and historians today. The story of glass is a story about art, history, culture, technology, science, craft and design. And we tell that story at The Corning Museum of Glass.

“I loved my bosses. They were great to work with and really helped me develop professional skills when working with the volunteers, both the teens and the adults. I also enjoyed the atmosphere of the museum itself: it is a diverse museum in a small upstate town so you get a wide range of opinions and outlooks!”
