: I would have given this exhibit 4*'s if I hadn't been to the 5* Chihuly permanent exhibit in Seattle and been blown away by it's huge exhibit that is both inside and outside in gorgeous gardens right under the Space Needle!! The Seattle exhibit seemed 10x bigger, but I was told they believe that it is 4x bigger. I... More

The museum is small but very lovely. Our guide was delightful and really added to the entire experience. We also went to the HotShop demonstration and THAT was fun.

Really like Chihuly's work. And this is ok as an introduction, but we had seen a larger exhibition of his at the Atlanta botanical gardens a few years. Not sure this part of our trip was worth the time (to get there) or price. If you do go, add on the hotshop demo (another 5 minute car ride away but... More

we were v keen to visit the chihully museum having seen the installation at Kew Gardens which was stunning and various another pieces. The gallery has some lovely pieces and the beautiful colours and shapes are sheer magic. Enjoyed the visit, would have liked more info about each piece but a lovely way to spend an hour or so.

$14.95 for an adult ticket (as of 12/18/2014). If you enjoy colorful and fanciful glass art married with fluid architecture, it’s definitely worth it. For me it was a no-brainer. Ever since I saw Chihuly’s glass art in Seattle back in the 90s, I’ve been a fan. As a glass artist, his installations around the world are truly impressive and... More

Be sure to have a volunteer take you on the tour of this small collection. They are very knowledgeable of the process and of Chihuly himself. I visited the Seattle Museum in Seattle in the summer, so this is the only reason this collection received 4 stars instead of 5. The St. Pete Collection is a great introduction to this... More

We loved visiting the Chihuly museum. It was fun being able to just wander within and admire the beautiful glass masterpieces. It is low key and a short visit, but well worth it.

We only took the self guided tour so this may not apply to the guided tour and visiting the hot shops that are available for an additional price. It took us only 15 minutes to slowly walk through the 4 exhibition rooms. While the small collection of glass is beautiful, I would in retrospect question having to pay almost $20... More

For about 15-30 minutes, this is a rather steep ticket, but Chihuly's glass is definitely stunning. A nice gift shop.
