Just thought the price tag was $24.00....Just too much money. Stunning pieces. Enormous size. They have classes I think in glass blowing. I would like to see more pieces to purchase. $10.00 is more a fair price. If you are a student..Half price.

I LOVE Chihuly and I was really excited to find out that St. Petersburg had a Chihuly museum! But when we got there, I almost decided not to go in after all; I thought it was a bit pricey and not a very big place, and I'd seen an exhibit of his in the Montreal Musee des Beaux Arts. But... More

Been a major fan of Chihuly for decades but my first time actually seeing his work. It was fantastic as was visiting the nearby hot shop and watching a glassblowing demo.

Chihuly glass is something you have to be beside to truly appreciate. Although this collection was smaller than I anticipated, what was there is magnificently displayed. The continuous running video room made this museum come to life for me. Each film clip shows how difficult these works of art are to create. I was fascinated! Nancy

If you like glass or have an appreciation for art, this is a must do! The glass sculptures are incredible and you can see them up close. The colors are beautiful. You can watch a video at the end that shows how this is done - fascinating! Included in your admission (coupons are available from your hotel concierge) is a... More

For those with no knowledge of glass art or Dale Chihuly this may be worth the time and money. For those lucky enough to have seen his work in other displays and out of doors the collection does not do justice to this master. The drawings and glass is all displayed in rooms with gray/black walls and heavily lighted with... More

This was a very quick visit and actually our first of 5 in the Clearwater/Tampa/St Pete area using a CityPass (HIGHLY recommend). It took us only about 20 minutes to get through this, but my kids were rushing through like it was a race (tweens/teen). I could have spent longer, the glass is just incredible.

Fantastic collection and excellent building. Allow time time to do the hot glass demonstration (across the street).

It was interesting. Some very interesting pieces of art. Thought it was over priced for the value of the experience. Not children friendly...lots of glass.

The collection is small but each display is beautiful. Nice short video gives good background into Chihuly and his techniques. Enjoyed the live demonstration across the street and the opportunity to buy a reasonably priced piece of blown glass.
