This collection is incredible and beautiful. So many unusual natural and organic shapes with vibrant colors. The museum for the most part is fairly dark but has lots of backlighting to show the incredible vibrant beautiful colors of all of the unusually shaped glass artwork. I highly recommend it. It's not a long visit or a lengthy tour. But it's... More

What a genius Dale Chihuly is! Although this permanent exhibition location is relatively small, if you are a Chihuly fan or even a fan of hand blown glass, it is a must see. I just found out that it is moving to a much larger location on Central Ave. next to the Morean Arts Center where you can also see... More

I'm a big fan of Chihuly glass. The first time I saw it was at the Borgata in Atlantic City, and I fell in love. This collection is wonderful to see, and represents a wide variety of the aesthetics that Chihuly has become known for. While you can work your way through the collection pretty quickly, I enjoy sitting and... More

My mother was visiting from out of town and was interested in seeing the collection. It was about 45 minutes to go through, and I felt it was worth it. There is a lot to see and it is easy to fixate on one piece of one installation. If you are not familiar with Chihuly, I can't see how you... More

Your mouth just drops when you see the talent of Chiluly and how gigantic his works are and it's here in our backyard! Do take the volunteer tour, no charge I believe. They tell you stories. The sculptures are very varied, very colorful and set the scene through Chiluly's Eyes.

Beautiful Chihuly pieces. The museum is moving a few blocks away to accommodate more art. Good to add on: a visit to the Hot Shop where you see a glass blowing demonstration.

We've been to St. Petersburg numerous times and while i've heard others rave about Chihuly, well, they're very 'arty' types and i was put off by the high admission price (guess it pays the rent there on Beach Dr.). Chihuly offers at least a couple times a year a Saturday when admission was $5 (?), for that price, this qualified... More

it seems that you pay top dollar for this tour and then you are in and out in 30 minutes, so I think the tour is very overpriced.

This place was very cool if your into art. They had the coolest glass work/designs. I was kind of bummed for the fact that you could t take pictures. (Love to take pics). It's not the most child friendly thing (GLASS). But if they aren't to young and they like art they would enjoy it. But definitely a place to... More
