Chihuly Garden and Glass, Seattle

4.7
Chihuly Garden and Glass features a comprehensive exhibit showcasing the work of Dale Chihuly, a renowned American glass sculptor and entrepreneur. Despite the considerable technical difficulties of working with blown glass, Chihuly uses it as a primary medium for large installations and environmental artwork, some of which you can see at this gallery. The artist's complex and colorful glass sculptures fill the eight-room greenhouse. Stop by the adjacent garden to see a blend of nature and more blown-glass creations.

  • I have visited several times. Chihuly's art is amazing in my opinion and I loved getting to look at this large collection. I see his work around the country and like to point out signature pieces when...  more »

  • If you like Chihuly, you're going to love the museum. The majority of the art is placed in dark rooms with lights fixed on the glass. Doing so highlights the beauty of individual pieces and entire arr...  more »

  • Chihuly is worth seeing in person. His installations are beautiful and so meticulously curated that the museum as a whole is always an incredible experience throughout. I’ve been to both this and the one in Florida and they’re both equally exquisite. My only comment is there are some similar installations in both locations, would love it even more if it felt less like the one I’ve already seen. But, there are still many unique installations here that make this still worth a visit even if you’ve been to the other. Great way to spend a couple of hours!
  • This is a unique place to visit and enjoy the time spent in sightseeing! The glass art works are truly amazing and one must consider the time and efforts taken by the artists in creating such unique and large items out of glass, that too in a variety of colours. Some of the display is inside a building while some are in the open, facing the cold and wet weather of the city. One should not miss this place on a visit to Seattle!The displays were unbelievable. Be sure to see the videos in the theater at the museum as they give a great incite of the artist and conceptual design of the displays. The glass blowing display in the outside garden was great to watch and the artist were interactive with the audience while creating there work.
  • The Chihuly Garden is located near the Space Needle and the Museum of Pop Culture. We did a combined tour of the Space Needle and the Chihuly Garden. The latter was definitely the "must see" in my book. Parking around this area is limited and expensive, so be prepared to park a little farther away and walk or take public transportation. The museum is quite small but laid out very well which actually makes the venue feel larger than it is. The art pieces and displays are gorgeous. The demonstrations are interesting to watch. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable for explaining the creations in more detail.
  • I thought that the Chihuly Garden and Glass was great. It was amazing to see what he can do with glass. The sculptures were so good. This is one of the places you do not want to forget a camera or at least your cellphone. The location is good as well being near the Space Needle and the Museum of Pop Culture. The ticket price isn't bad either. The gift shop has books, dvds, and even allows you to purchase some of his glass sculptures.
  • You HAVE TO GO HERE!!! It's absolutely incredible!!! Beautiful and calming! I went in April and it wasn't over crowded. They did a glass blowing demo and had earth day activities for the kids! It was stunning the talent and eccentricities of Chihuly himself. Loved it!
