    Your ticket is good for two days. With kids, two half-days is better than one whole day.

    When you walk in pass up the shops to get to the admission table. Buy a coin anywhere for $3 and you can get a marble at the cool contraption. You will know what I mean. Don't miss this museum!!

    The parking lot is a block and a half away from the actual museum. But there's a secret parking lot right behind the museum and you won't have to walk or wait for the shuttle!

    The amazing glzaa exhibits are well worth the tour. Stop at historic Marmet Street using the free shuttle for a bite to eat after your tout. Great way to spend an afternoon.

    Barely anything in the gift shop is actually made at the facility. Check the labels most things are made in china. A bit odd if you ask me to get glass made in china at the Corning glass museum no?

    Allocate 4 hours to get through it all. Schedule your trip to match show times, open late in summer. Museum store is pricey.

    You'd think based on the name and associated company that this is a super technical museum, but it's actually a great mix of modern art and history
