The artistic talent was unmistakable but I thought the collection was overpriced at $14PP. Overall the collection is rather small and if you visit without a docent (as we did) its hard to appreciate what you are seeing since there is no written narrative.

$14.99 for a very, very small exhibit. The work is traditional Chihuly, nothing out of the ordinary. We were very disappointed in the limited volume of work displayed.

We have been to this collection of art several times with family and friends. We are very grateful this Chilhuly chose St. Petersburg as a location for this museum. It is a must see!

This is a gorgeous collection of glass, but the museum is very small. If you're a local Pinellas county resident, I'd recommend visiting on free museum day.

From the moment you enter the Chihuly Collection, you feel a calm and amazement. The collection of glass art is breathtaking! I could spend hours enjoying the 'garden' at the end of the collection.

I like the way this can be done in 2 hours, and guides are very good. It is a very different museum. I liked the movie that tells about Chihuly.

The Chihuly Collection is definately a must see on your trip to St. Petersburg. It is truly amazing the vision this man has. I've been numerous times and each time I get more out of the exhibit. After the tour you are free to wander through again and take time to stop and reflect on what the docent explained during... More
