This collection is amazing. Never knew you could make amazing art with glass. Chihuly knows what he's doing. The collection does change so make sure to visit again. Also check out his collection in the lobby of the Bellagio in Vegas.

Don't waste your money. The whole museum takes less than 10 mins to walk through. There wasn't any information to read about the amazing art. The price for admission is far too much for what this place has to offer. Go to the Dali or the art museum instead where you walk further than 20 feet to see everything. My... More

If you haven't been downtown St. Petersburg in a while, you are missing it. The transformation is wonderful, for someone who has visited the area for over 40 years. The Chihuly exhibit is wonderful and adds to the excitement of downtown.

Small in size but huge in amazing beauty. I have seen his work in Las Vegas and at Atlantis in the Bahamas and was looking forward to viewing his work here. At first I thought the gallery was very small but after looking at each piece and display I was amazed at how much work, beauty and detail was included.... More

We finally made it to the Chihuly Collection in St. Petersburgh, Florida. It has been there for four years and each year we visit the area, we have never made it to there. I'm so glad we did this time. I enjoy Chihuly's work, and find it to be amazing and spectacular. While this exhibit was small, several key features... More

St. Petersburg, Florida, has changed in many ways since my family began visiting the town in the late 1940s and early 1950s. The million-dollar pier is shuttered. The green benches that attracted thousands of retirees and for so many years was the town's trademark are gone. But the Vinoy Hotel is still there. And what is most interesting of all... More

Adding to the list of reasons I am growing in my love for the St. Petersburg, FL area, the Chohuly Glass collection at the Morean on the bay is a first class collection of Dale Chihuly's famous and colorful blown glass artwork. From the moment you enter, the intimate collection starts off small and uncovers a new and more spectacular... More

I'm so glad my sister-in-law took us there when we were visiting her in the area. I'm not an art expert but I do know what I like. This glasswork by Chihuly was one of the most beautiful collections I've ever seen and I've been to Paris museums. My teenage daughter enjoyed it too. I thought the price around $50.00... More
