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.

Chihuly Garden and Glass Reviews
This place is truly a gem in more ways then one. It enlightens your senses and it is hard to imagine how talented some people are! more »

This place evokes joy for me. Delight. Everything I see brings joy and delight. Pure magic for the senses. Breathtaking. Magnificent. It should be one of the wonders of the world! The glass displays truly exceeded my expectations. I have seen Chihuly installations before and loved them but these really play with light, color, and form to an exceptional extent. Make sure to also look at the paintings and sculptures along the walls as they are gorgeous but easily overlooked.This museum has wonderful glass exhibits that are one of a kind. The interior exhibits are just as stunning, if not more so, then the gardens. It's like being transported to another world. One of my very favorite places.
Really beautiful experience. So many creations of Chihuly glass art. Many different displays literally surprise us and we just go on and on looking everywhere in awe. It's a treasure for someone who loves glass arts and in general artistic museums. So many colorful artifacts are placed everywhere and in the outdoor garden too. It's really gorgeous. Loved to see all the displays and colorful creations !!
