“Tour was short and expensive”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Total bust, tour was short and expensive. We were in Seattle on the first Thursday of the month and found out all the museums in downtown are free to support the art walk, except The Chihuly Glass Garden. Heard some locals complaining about it since Chihuly is from Tacoma. The SAM was way better.

“I was ready to not like it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Truely impressive; stunningly beautiful.
Everyone's seen blown glass and, unless you're a real afficiando, a little can go a long way - I'm with you. So, a whole museum of blown glass may not seem all that attractive an attraction. But the Chihuly at Seattle Centre is spectacular; very much worth a visit.

Beautiful Chihuly! Loved The Seattle Center..vibrant, hip, friendly city! Everyone is wearing Eskimo Shoes, a Satchel and seems to be 1/2 baked :)

“Best Exhibit in Seattle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

The Chihuly exhibit was a highlight for our family. I'm familiar with Chihuly's work but was really impressed with the garden installation and themed rooms. A wonderful opportunity for my husband to nerd out with his camera gear!

Also note - the onsite photographer will take your photo at no extra charge and you can access / download the photo at a later date to print. Nice touch.

“Awe-mazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012 via mobile

Such a fascinating exhibit! The art form was magical to see. This is an impressive modern art museum, and will be with Seattle for the next 30 years apparently. Make sure to bring a camera --- your photos would look amazing too.

It took us about an hour or so to see the whole exhibit and we weren't in a rush.

They have a complimentary coat check. Also, they encourage you to follow along with the audio presentation to complement the display, by scanning a QR code. They provide the ear buds too.

This is perfect for adults. I don't think that this is meant for children necessarily... unless they are 10+ years to appreciate the museum.
