“Love Chihuly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

I only rated this collection average as it is one of the smaller collections I've had to pay to see. Love Chihuly's work.

“Chihuly collection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

This is probably the best collection of Chihuly Glass outside of the motherlode and studio in Tacoma, WA. If you haven't been to Tacoma this is an excellent exhibit and well worth your time. A wide variety of shapes and colors. It is a definitive exhibit of Chihuly's work and has some spectacular pieces.

Of course, if you have a chance to visit Tacoma you will get to visit the "hot" studio and see glass being made.

“not worth the price of admission”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

the exhibit itself is a good representation of Chihuly works, however it costs $12.00 per person(for seniors) and you can see everything in about 15 minutes. there is no film in the exhibit to show how the pieces are made or for biography of the artist. the souvenir shop does have a film playing on a small t.v. with no seats so you must stand in front of it blocking the view of people behind you. the items for sale are outrageously priced. $32.00 for a t-shirt that costs about $2.00 to make. I advise people to go to Las Vegas and walk through the Bellagio hotel and see the Chihuly works there for free instead.

“Cheers for Chihuly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

This was a real find! It was raining one day during our Florida vacation so we ventured to St. Pete for a day of museum-hopping. We both appreciate Chihuly designs, so the opportunity to see these stunning works was something we could not miss. It is a striking color feast for the eyes, and so surprising to have close access to the works. Although we saw some children there, I would be very cautious about bringing too-curious toddlers or unruly tykes who can not keep their hands to themselves or behave appropriately among the art.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

As a lover of glass art, I thought I'd seen it all. But this exhibit really blew me away. The colors, variety of pieces, and scale of some of the works are amazing.
