I loved everything about St Petersburg. The attractions pass for 99 dollars sends tourist to different areas of Tampa and St Petersburg. The Chihuly collection is small and probably will take a visitor about 30 minutes to explore. I missed the last docent tour. Photos may be taken and the lighting is magical as the blown glass. I did see... More

The Chihuly Museum is small. Without a docent lead tour, a visit may last about a half and hour. I saw the special exhibit at the VMFA in Richmond, Va and the blown glass exhibits are smaller renditions of the displays there. It is beautifully lighted and photo taking is allowed. I used my attractions pass and parked at a... More

Viewed the Chihuly College after touring the Dali Museum with the Picasso exhibit. Having seen the Chihuly Museum in Seattle in the spring, when all the spring flowers were in bloom there, this didn't compare. It is of course a smaller exhibit, but the docent was great and the charming greeter/ticket taker started the visit on a good plane. There... More

The Chihuly Collection in St. Petersburg Florida is absolutely beautiful! Located in the Morean Arts Center, is a Gallery showing various Chihuly pieces that are amazing! After the tour I suggest going to the Glass Blowing Demo. Talk about talent!

This is a fairly small but impressive display of Chihuly glass pieces. Most of the pieces are quite large, full of colour and beautiful to look at from all angles. Kids under 5 are free and my 3 year old son LOVED this museum. We wandered through looking at each piece three times. (Though we were still only there for... More

$15 per person, tours start on the half hour. I walked through on my own. The art is excellent and beautiful. It honestly took us 20 minutes and we were done. Disappointed in the size of the exhibit not the art, Chihuly is very talented person.

As other reviewers have said, this is a small collection but absolutely beautiful. We did a tour with a docent - it only takes about 45 minutes. The only drawback is, the price for entrance is exorbitant for such a small collection and tour. If I had it to do over, I think I would pass up this visit in... More

If you like hand blown glass work, this site is the best. Dale Chihuly works are world class; the best. Take advantage of the works on display. The best...master glass glowers works. this is worth the admissin cost and then some!!!
