“Went for Chihuly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Went to see the Chihuly exhibit, which was awesome. It was packed (Saturday afternoon), would recommend going off hours for the more popular stuff to have a bit less of a hustled experience.

“Chihuly glass outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Went with my daughter and grandchildren to see this outstanding exhibit----the kids were mesmerized, especially by the hallway with the ceiling of glass. When we finished with this special exhibit, we walked through exhibits on the second floor. The building was well-maintained and exhibits were very well done. We ate in the cafe---good fresh fruit, and artichoke/olive/feta salad---excellent! I wish we lived closer to visit more often.

“Great day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We visited on the last day of the Chihuly glass exhibit. It was mindblowing. The other galleries are filled with great exhibits and have a wide variety of collections, making it a full day visit. The gift shop is a fun place to wander and browse and the Cafe is a lovely place to sit, have a bite and enjoy the view of the outdoor pond and garden. A gem in Virginia!

We went during the glass show. Wow! They even had a live glass blower demonstration outside. Great setup by the staff. Parking was super easy.
