Visits to the Corning Museum of Glass over many years

 

The Corning Museum of Glass is truly a unique Museum!   It focuses on only one subject –  glass. The purpose of this blog is to highlight the historical glass collection which is the most comprehensive and perhaps best in the world. The Museum has more than 45,000 objects and traces 3,500 years of glassmaking history.  “CMOG”, as it is called,  is a lot more than just the collection galleries, shown below are other features of the Museum as taken from their web site:
