We drove to St. Petersburg to see the Chihuly Collection. These glass sculptures are absolutely amazing! The colors and the variety of these sculptures are wonderful to look at. We have seen Chihuly exhibits before, and each time we are truly astounded. I do wish this exhibit would change periodically and that there were more sculptures in this exhibit. If... More

Have seen some of the work in Las Vegas but this was special. Guided tour around the works and then can go round again, unguided. A wonderful process producing amazing works of art, very different, you can see the Venetian influence but Chilhuly has taken glass, "blowing" a stage further.

As many previous people have mentioned, tagging along on the docent guided tour is well worth it. The display of Chihuly' s work is breathtaking. Highly recommend this visually inspiring display.

This is a very small museum. If you love Chihuly and haven't seem much of his work in person, then go. Otherwise, I'd skip this one.

Small museum overall, but very interesting work in glass. Helped me understand an interesting and a bit strange installation in my home town (Rochester, NY). You'll learn much if you take the tour.

We were all familiar with Chihuly's art but only one of us (6 in the group) had viewed a collection before. The small size of this permanent collection was perfect but the docent leading the tour made the difference in increasing our appreciation of the works of art. Not only was the artwork explained but the design of the building.... More

If you go, take a tour! Lots of interesting information and fun to boot! Small but amazing museum! We also signed up to go to the Hot Spot as part of our tour. That was very interesting too!

My husband and I have been Chihuly fans since one of his traveling collections came to the Atlanta Botanical Garden. We've also seen his work at the Bellagio hotel out in Las Vegas. The Chihuly collection in St. Pete is small but beautiful. There are only about 4 rooms in the museum. I enjoyed the artwork because there are some... More

My wife found out about this place because our daughter saw a similar exhibit elsewhere. There is plenty of metered parking on the streets nearby. This exhibit is really exhilarating because of all the variety of bright colours they use to produce the glass displays. Many of the displays are very large and photo taking is allowed. You don't often... More
