Thank you for your question! 

The Corning Museum of Glass does have a handful of neon pieces in its permanent collection, such as Paul Seide's "Untitled Triple Loop" (CMoG 91.4.61), though most are not currently on display.

One example of neon in the Museum’s permanent collection that is currently on display is Mark Stanley’s 1976 Flow Gate. Flow Gate was originally on display in the 1979 exhibition, "New Glass: A Worldwide Survey," and can be seen through January 5, 2020, as part of the New Glass Now | Context exhibition at the Rakow Research Library.

The New Glass Now exhibition in the Museum's Contemporary Art + Design Galleries though January 5, 2020, features several works that include neon.
