Use to live in the Northwest so was interested in seeing Chihuly exhibit. Exhibit was very small for price of $20 per person. Rest of museum wasn't too exciting. Took about 20 minutes to go through entire museum. Sad that there is no gift shop now. Asked about membership and upcoming exhibits. Decided to pass. Way too expensive for a... More

We found the price to be a bit steep for the size of the museum. When we went there was a Chihuly exhibit that was an extra fee. We're glad that we didn't pay for that! It was only one room, and you could see quite a bit of it from the doorway. If you want to see Chihuly I... More

Loved this place, especially when it's "hot" outside. You know, like over 80:). I heard they are doing some really cool stuff and adding an awesome exhibit next summer!

We only visited the art museum, but it was definitely not worth the price of admission nor the time we spent. Most of the art work was amateurish. The were a few pieces by well known artists, but not their best works. There was one Georgia O'Keefe that was worth seeing. They had a limited amount of Native American art... More

Ever since Scott RC Levy took over as artistic director for the theatre program, the Fine Arts Center has been extraordinary. I knew I would enjoy working here as an actor (and as a frequent theatre patron) when he chose "Assassins" by Stephen Sondheim as his first production. The scenery by Chris Sheley is astounding, the live music with music... More

We specifically went to the museum to see the Chihullay Glass Exhibit which was very interesting. The permanant collection is also interesting.

I have visited this museum several times, having grown up in a nearby city. I went back during a visit home, specifically to see the Chihuly exhibit. I was just in Seattle in March, where I saw Chihuly's complex - nothing really compares to that, I guess, as I find this CO exhibit too small and not truly showcasing his... More

We were attracted by the Chihuly exhibit, but the whole visit disappointed. Expensive for what was on display. Nice Indian artifacts exhibit, Chihuly was small and not very imaginatively installed. High point was the huge orange work hanging from the ceiling. The center has exactly one each of O'keefe, Remington, Chagall, Sargent, but only the Sargent is a first tier... More

This was the 4th Chihuly exhibit we have seen and among the most expensive ($20 each for non-member adults), even though it was the smallest of the four. The other exhibits were made special by the care that was taken in the installations, such as expressive lighting, painting on wall, mirrors and/or knowledgeable docent comments. None of that was evident,... More
