March 27 – April 10, 2021

Spring Break at The Corning Museum of Glass will be "Out Of This World".

Explore the galleries using our space-y activity sheet and the first 50 youth visitors each day will receive a constellation-themed activity pack so that you can continue the adventure at home.

Spring Break activities are included with Museum admission.

Admission for kids and teens is always free, and local residents (living in ZIP codes beginning with 148, 149, or 169) can visit for just $10, making Spring Break at the Museum an affordable option for families of all sizes.

Live Hot Glass Demos

There's nothing quite like the thrill of watching talented artists work molten hot glass into beautiful works of art. You can experience that feeling at the Museum during live, narrated glassmaking demonstrations. All demos are included in the cost of admission. Walk in, sit down, and enjoy the wonder of this centuries-old art form.

Make Your Own Glass

If you want to experience glass in a whole new way, try Make Your Own Glass! You pick a project and we pair you with one of our experienced glassmakers who will guide you through the process as you create your very own masterpiece. Projects cover a range of techniques and are available for all ages and skill levels. They do sell out quickly, so we recommend booking your project in advance.
