reflections and black backgrounds made this fun to photograph, which I think enhanced my viewing. Don't let rain spoil your enjoyment of the gardens--visit like a Northwesterner.

This is a must see in Seattle, right next to the Space Needle in Seattle Center. Three areas, outdoor garden, glass house and indoor space. I really enjoyed my visit, worth every penny!

We have never seen glass turned into such incredible beauty. At the end of the self guided tour watching the informational video is a must to gain a perspective.

Whenever we find ourselves in SEATTLE, usually for an Alaska Cruise, we always book a couple of extra days to see the sites and shop. Obviously there are many things to do and see, not to mention taste in the SEATTLE Area. for us the first full day always starts with a trip to the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum.... More

Went here on a last minute thought when visiting the space needle. Super glad we did. The glass sculptures are stunning and the surrounding gardens are peaceful. Great video about the artist.

Great value, beautiful building and grounds for the works to be displayed. Great engaged staff that wanted to be at work and had a real excitement. Love that they took a photo that we could upload. If you get to Seattle just go.

Sculptures are spectacular, outdoor gardens are scenic and in the shadow of the iconic space needle. Movie is interesting.

Unlike almost any other museum or gallery, this place had indoor and outdoor spaces that perfectly displayed Chihuly's works: it was obvious that great intention went into customizing and optimizing the displays to make best use of the local area, the sunlight, etc. Best of all: photographs (without flashes) were permitted everywhere!

Normally I wouldn't be too excited to go to a museum with a bunch of glass but this was an amazing experience that shouldn't be missed. Incredible talent! So glad we went.
