Though I am not "artsy", I was amazed at the beauty and talent of this artist. You MUST see it in person to appreciate the work.

This beautiful bridge with its ceiling of Chihuly Glass flowers is rivaled only by the Chihuly ceiling at Bellagio's in Las Vegas. But why go to Las Vegas when you can see his amazing work close to home?

We climbed the ramp from the glass museum and walked through the bridge of glass a couple of times - each time seeing something that we missed before. Well worth the time!

Some magnificent glass sculptures are on display! The colors & shapes are spectacular! You can watch artists blow and mold glass. A bit expensive though.

I always make a point to walk across the bridge when visiting Tacoma! The bright colors and shapes of the glass art brightens any drizzly or gray day!

Bit of an anticlimax after seeing the Chihuly museum in Seattle. The kiln at the end of the bridge is interesting.

The bridge itself isn't made of glass. It is a typical pedestrian bridge but one that has glass art installed on it.

Hi Maggie, yes there is ample parking space nearby. But we simply parked our RV at the curb on Dock street. But there are parking lots along Dock Street as well.

The bridge is always open. It’s an open walkway and bridge between the Washington State Historical Museum and the Glass Museum.
