Glass changes the world—see how in our award-winning, state-of-the-art, interactive science and technology exhibit called the Innovation Center. Do It! stations let you bend light, bend glass and bend your imagination.
A 300-foot bridge connects three floating pavilions. A huge glass egg suspended from the ceiling is a bulb-like theater where the development of electric light and the TV picture tube radiates from the "filament." Casserole dishes are the building blocks of a tower that encloses the story of the lucky accident that made casserole dishes possible. A glass floor is a vantage point from which to watch the story of strengthened glass. Overhead, hanging windshields form a glassy sculpture. The famous 200-inch disk stands as the symbol for The Corning Museum of Glass.
In the Glass Innovation Center, meet the inventors whose ideas changed the world. Discover how their strokes of genius, their hard work, or sometimes a lucky accident gave us the glass we take for granted. Dabble with glass chemistry. Explore the power of optical fiber to carry us into the future. See yourself in the strange reflection of a flight simulator mirror.
