Corning – 3 visits for the excellency of glass


To see Glass Museum

Excellent museum, with a large historical collection, a didactic area about new technologies, a large shop, and a living demonstration of Steuben’s staff.

​I’ve seen some other glass museums in the world after being there, but this museum keeps being my number one.

Glass masterpieces

Glass studio

It’s not only a shop: It’s an example.
Along main street, several shops offer beautiful glass handicrafts, with the artists working in background. The influence of the excellent school and museum is notorious, and the city became one of the world’s best known glass manufacturing locations.

The prices… well, if we compare them with Murano

What to buy: Glass handicrafts

I recommend ​Fairfield Inn

Quiet, clean and cheap

Fairfield in winter

First time sleeping in Corning we stayed at Fairfield’s. It was exactly what we needed, so, it became my hotel in town, and we stayed there again. A warning: be careful if you use the hotel’s phone. Some of my friends were presented with astronomic bills calling to Portugal, charging even the failed attempts to connect.
