    As a very clumsy person, I feel like I'd be scared to walk around in a museum with such fragile items. Regardless, the museum sounds very intriguing, I have never heard of it before even though I am from New York.

    I was there a few years ago for business and stopped by for a lunch time visit — it's really quite amazing to see all the handblown items they've collected there, particularly since Corning, NY is not exactly (well, not anymore) the bustling center of anything.

    I visited Corning when I was very young. Even then, I was in awe of everything on display, from the very old to the new. Enjoyed the video!
