Corning glass museum - Everything about GLASS

I was on 3 day tour last week and this is the place that i liked most after Niagara falls.
The corning glass museum, which is in Corning, New York, USA is not only a museum with collection of around 45000 glass objects but also an institution for glass making with a research lab. It allows you to explore different galleries of glass art from ancient period to contemporary. Here are some extraordinary glass art designs:

Contemporary art


Unique piece

There are 45 minute live demos of glass making.
Museum also explains the history of glass making and latest innovations with examples.
Broken glass can also be an art?

Until next time,
