“FASCINATING AND BEAUTIFUL BUT NOT CHEAP”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

You cannot imagine the beautiful forms Chihuly creates from glass. The colors and arrangements are spectacular. The center provides a history through pictures of the styles the artist has gone through and his influences. $20 for adults.

“Beautiful glasswork”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Ron Judd of the Seattle Times calls this the "Dale Chihuly Museum of Self-Aggrandizement" and I agree with him. I'm not crazy about a museum dedicated entirely to one artist, and one who is still living at that. But it is beautiful work and it is displayed really beautifully. One nice thing about it is that photography is definitely allowed and there are also professional photographers who will take your picture for free.

“Amazingly beautiful glass museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

History of this location used to be a small amusement park. Look at the original cement floors and you can imagine what used to be attached there. The collections or other artwork is quite amazing. Stop in and eat a the cafe and observe more art collections. Springtime outside allows you to create masterpiece photographs

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Wasn't sure if we should spend the money since the garden is partly visble from the outside. So happy we did. I have completely fallen for his beautiful art. If you love venetian glass or Lalique this is a must! Another great take on functional art. Make sure you have time left for the gift shop - it's wonderful as well.

“A one of a kind museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Sitting at the base of the Space Needle is the wonderful Chihuly Glass Museum. Eye popping color, fantastically imaginative displays and beautiful gardens make this a must see for Seattle visitors. Very unique.
