When attending Glass Expo Northeast™ ’17 (GENE) March 30-31, consider exploring some of the local family-friendly attractions just minutes away from the Hilton Long Island/Huntington Hotel!

Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery & Aquarium hosts the largest living collection of New York State freshwater reptiles, fish and amphibian. Visitors can tour two aquarium buildings, eight outdoor ponds, feed the trout and try out their “Catch & Keep” fishing.

The Heckscher Museum of Art, located in Huntington’s historic Heckscher Park, has been serving the people of Long Island since 1920. With more than 2,500 pieces of work spanning from the early 16th century to the present, this museum seeks to provide education and public programs to encourage a better understanding of past and present.

And finally, there is the Vanderbilt Museum, Mansion and Planetarium. The estate was given to Suffolk County, New York by William K. Vanderbilt II, heir to one of America’s greatest fortunes, for the use, education and enjoyment of the public. Enjoy a guided tour of the mansion’s living quarters, stroll the gardens and tour the marine museum and animal habitats. Don’t forget to visit the planetarium for an impressive sky show.

GENE ’17 is the region’s largest glass-related conference and trade show dedicated to the architectural glass and metal industry.

We hope you’ll take advantage of all that the city of Huntington has to offer during your trip. To learn more about GENE ’17 and to register to attend, please visit usglassmag.com/gene.
