Start by calling the Steuben County Conference and Visitors Bureau (607-974-2066) or the Schuyler County Chamber of Commerce (607-535-4300; www.schuylerny.com ). The Radisson Hotel in Corning (607-962-5000) offers comfortable rooms and an indoor pool and is handy to the Rockwell Museum, just off Market Street (607-937-5386). Stuart Chase, the museum’s director, explains that first-time visitors always ask the same question: “Where are all the Norman Rockwells?” In fact the museum takes its name from the Robert F. Rockwell, Jr., family, who donated the bulk of the permanent collection. The museum boasts the largest accumulation of art from the American West in eastern America, as well as sizable collections of Steuben glass and antique toys and a hands-on art room. If the Curtiss Museum (607-569-2160) fails to satiate your yen for airplane memorabilia, try the National Warplane Museum about twenty-five miles away in Horseheads, New York (607-739-8200; www.warplane.org ). Don’t miss its B-17 Flying Fortress, the Fuddy Duddy . The Corning Museum of Glass is at 607-974-8271, or www.cmog.org .
