“As Good as Baseball!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

My husband had to drag me and our two young adult sons to this exhibit as we were only in Florida for spring training! But what a delight!! The following year we all went happily. Such astounding colors and shapes. A must on anyone's agenda for down town St Petersburg.

“Colorful, impressive but way-too-small exhibit.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Someone else mentioned that the film, which you should see when you first come in, was better than the collection. It is, indeed, very interesting and instructive. The glass displays were very lovely. Because a docent was with a group ahead of us we almost missed half the exhibits which, we were told when we were mistakenly leaving, numbered 18. But when you go through the entire collection you feel you definitely want/need/deserve to see more. I don't regret going but felt a bit cheated at the conclusion. Should be noted that the staff is very, very nice.

“Like opening a jewelry box”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

It was a wonderful way to explore the work of Dale Chihuly. Fanciful, playful pieces beautifully displayed. Video was great introduction to his work. Docent was very informative. This beautifully designed building adds to the art treasure of St. Petersburg. I wish we had had time to explore the Morean Arts Center while we were there. Definitely worth a stop if you can.

“Glad Chihuly stopped here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Another venue confirming St. Pete's position as an arts destination for the Tampa Bay area, both for viewers and glass artists themselves, who are now flocking to the area.
