“Amazing Pieces of Art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Simply put, the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum is a spectacular attraction, and was one of the most interesting I've seen anywhere I've ever been. This is apparently a recent addition to Seattle Center.

I am by no means anything close to an art enthusiast, I've been to one or two museums ever, but the sheer beauty & size of the pieces here are what any visitor will appreciate, from children to adults. The colors, shapes, and designs are just amazing to take in, these are pieces of art that most of us never considered could exist, which makes them that much more surprising. You will find yourself taking hundreds of pictures here, and I believe they designed the facility to provide great photos (from the lighting and layout indoors, to the Space Needle in the background outdoors).

Beyond the glass itself, the garden (which of course has glass works distributed throughout) has some very nice flowers, which are beautiful in and of themselves. Additionally, the gift shop you exit through has a bunch of very interesting and fun items - we spent at least an hour in the shop, after close to 2 hours with the glass.

Overall, this is an outstanding exhibit, and if you have any time in Seattle Center, Chihuly is a must-see.

“Stunning!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

A must see!! This museum was absolutely wonderful. I have seen one of his exhibits in my hometown, but nothing like this. The scope of the sculptures and exhibits was incredible. We went during the day, but I can imagine the lights on the outside garden sculptures would be amazing.

“Don't use all the photos up in the space needle”

This attraction is worth paying for - every room you go through on the exhibition is just amazing .This is one place to take a photo and enlarge on your wall at home.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

I was skeptical of Chihuly, but was pleasantly surprised. Art isn't really my thing, usually kind of boring, but this place is stunning! We had a great time wandering through, discovering amazing sculptures around every corner!

Stunning !!! The line moves along fear not. I would recommend highly. We did the space needle and the EMT since they are located together.
