On Saturday we visited the Corning Museum of Glass and the Rockwell Museum. I got quite a few pictures, so I will be sharing the Rockwell Museum pictures next week. Hubby was most excited to see their exhibit on the moon. I, however, was looking forward to looking through the display of glass through history so we could spot some pieces that come from the time periods and places we have been learning about in our homeschool.
If you would like to see more pictures, I invite you to check out my Corning Museum of Glass Field Trip Part One and Corning Museum of Glass Field Trip Part Two posts from four years ago. We got so many pictures both times, and saw so much, but there was still so much new this time around. What a wonderful place to visit.
First we checked out some contemporary pieces.
Then we enjoyed another glass blowing demonstration before heading to lunch.
I wish I had been able to snap a picture of the finished bowl. It was gorgeous.
After lunch we made out way to the moon exhibit.
Then we finally took some time looking through the history of glass.
I tried to pick out some of our favorite pieces. But it was so hard, there were so many interesting pieces.
They had a fun scavenger hunt paper for the children to take along with them in the museum.
They were quite amused by seeing something as modern as a Pyrex measuring cup.
On the way out I spent some time taking pictures of the timeline on the wall. I had to share the following picture because this is the time period we are learning about right now. Cool. Never remember reading about this in school.
No button currently, and there won't be one until I can figure it out seeing as Photobucket has changed things. Feel free to still share the picture in place of the button on your Wordless Wednesday post or in a list of Wordless Wednesday linkies. Just link it to my Wordless Wednesday permalink please.
