Corning Museum of Glass

The touristy thing today was a visit to the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning NY. Children are free and there is a discount for AAA members. Other than the museum and historical sections, there is an Interactive area which is very hands on with lots of experiments and exhibits showing all the ways glass is made and used.
Here the whole family gets to listen and participate in a screen based demo explaining how glass is made from differing chemicals and which chemicals will change the colour, texture or durability.
