Your visit to Corning, NY isn’t complete without visiting both The Rockwell Museum and The Corning Museum of Glass — two world-class museums based in charming Downtown Corning. Purchase a combination ticket and save up to 10% on your experience. Kids 17 and under are always free to both museums.
The pass is valid for the whole day, and the free shuttle bus will bring your group from doorstep to doorstep and to Corning’s delightful dining and shopping options. For group tours, your bus driver only needs to park once at one of our conveniently located FREE bus parking spaces.
Art about the American experience — the people, land and ideas that shape America through the eyes of American artists. The diverse collection of original American masterpieces includes a mix of contemporary Native American art alongside traditional bronze sculptures, landscape paintings and other works that embody America and the migration west. The Rockwell is named for our founding collectors, Bob and Hertha Rockwell, local business owners who amassed an incredible collection of American art and artifacts. Allow 1 – 1.5 hours.
At the world’s largest glass museum, you can see glass, see glass being made, and even make glass yourself! Browse 35 centuries of glassmaking history in the collection galleries, then explore the new Contemporary Art + Design Wing, which houses large-scale works from the last 25 years in glass. Watch glass come to life before your eyes in the recently-added Amphitheater Hot Shop, the largest space in the world to watch a live Hot Glass Demo. Be inspired to create your own glass masterpiece during a 40-minute Make Your Own Glass workshop at The Studio. Allow 3-4 hours for your visit to The Corning Museum of Glass.
