Chihuly's glass artwork is glorious in this environment. During our visit, part of the venue was closed for a private event but it didn't detract from our enjoyment. There are approximately 15 installations, one more striking than the next. Take your camera!!

For the next several months Chihuly has an outstanding and extensive collection of his work married to the flora of the gardens. I have seen his art in many places, including his Seattle studio, but have never seen it displayed so well. Do yourself a favor and go before the exhibit leaves.

Went to the Denver Botanic Gardens to see the Chihuly exhibit. The gardens were the big surprise. Chihuly was amazing. This is the third garden exhibit of his I visited. The landscape architecture in the park was diverse and well planned. I plan to go back even after the exhibit leaves. Worth the price of admission!

The Chihuly exhibit is one of the most exciting events I have seen in Denver. It is well organized and every time I turned around there was something marvelous to see, some were subtle, others were dramatic. I can't wait to go back and see it in the evening when it is lit. A definite MUST DO!!

Maybe it isn't the biggest or boldest botanic garden out there, but considering the arid climate of Denver it is absolutely impressive. Buy a pass and you can go as often as you like to read, picnic, or just relax.

Beautiful Chihuli exhibit. It would have been better for photography closer to sunset. The Gardens are not overwhelmingly large.

The Chihuly exhibit was what connected me to the Botanic Gardens in Denver. Really awesome display! Well done! I would have liked to see it at night. Worth the $15 admission.

Beautiful art added to the gardens in a unique way to appear as part of the landscape. AMAZING blown glass sculptures, by artist who is known for the Vegas Bellagio ceiling and many other unique places. Young and old, alike, will love this. Trails and bridges are lovely as you meander through gardens and wooded areas. An eatery sits hidden... More

I love Botanic gardens, they differ so much around the world and Denver's is well worth a visit. In the city suburbs, there is plenty of parking and on a good day you can enjoy several hours wandering around the main areas, specialist gardens, greenhouses AND don't forget the children's garden over the road. Excellent cafe for refreshments. There was... More
