Visiting Corning Museum of Glass with Kids

Have you ever thought about visiting the Corning Museum of Glass with Kids?  I’ve always wanted to but I wasn’t sure if it was kid friendly.  I had also heard great things about their glass making classes. We decided to give it a try and planned a last minute weekend getaway to Corning, NY.
