Corning Museum of Glass
The internationally renowned Studio offers glassmaking classes for a variety of skill levels and techniques, as well as artist residencies and hot shop rentals.
The glass museum is great for families with glass blowing activities and historical pieces of glass. You can take home a piece of glass that you create!
Great place to take kids. Very hands on exhibits. Kids go free. Highly recommend.
An excellent rainy day activity. This is a world class museum with glass blowing exhibits, with ancient and modern works

“This place is awesome! It’s 45 min dive on the other side of the lake but so worth it! Make a reservation, you can sit inside or out! Food is amazing! ”
“Stop in Burdette on your way to Watkins Glen for breakfast at this lovely cafe. You'll feel right at home with quality self-serve coffee, excellent baked goods, and filling breakfast entrees.”
“My go-to for Pizza in Watkins Glen! Good Italian food if you want to sit down in the restaurant. *Pro Tip: If it's a busy weekend order a pizza from the Montour location (10mins away) and checkout the amazing Shequaga Falls when you go to pick it up.”
