“Fabulous art, more beautiful than one can imagine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Dale Chihuly's glass artwork is simply amazing. Pictures cannot do it justice. It must be seen in person to be fully appreciated. There are no words to describe the beauty of the pieces. The narratives describing each piece are also very interesting. This exhibit may seem expensive for the time required to view it (about 30 minutes or so), but it's worth every penny.

“Spectacular exhibition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

You have to know this comes from a glass art lover but still: this is a stectacular exhibition. For sure the first part is breathtaking. It's inside and the dark rooms with focused light on the art pieces makes you feel like walking through a dream. The outside part is nice for it's mix with nature. An excellent combination with the space needle.

“Wow! Spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

What a wonderful exhibit of beautiful, colorful, masterfully worked displays of colored glass! You may think... Who wants to go look at glass? Trust me... YOU do! This is well worth the visit and can easily be fit to any time arrangement you choose. You can move through slowly and savor every piece of artwork or you can cruise through more quickly and still enjoy the uniqueness of these works. There are glassworks both inside and outside for your pleasure. Wait till you see the room with all the glass in the ceiling. Talk about rubbernecking... Be careful not to run in to anyone while gazing up!

“Shocked by the price ... our bad for not reading properly.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

It is all a matter of reading the pricing above the cashier. We saw the $33 when we walked into the lobby and didn't realize it was for both the Chilhuly Garden and the Space Needled and walked out. We were not aware that there was a $19.00 price for admission. Needless to say, the pieces we saw from the outside were incredible, sorry we didn't reading the pricing properly.
