Someone else mentioned that the film, which you should see when you first come in, was better than the collection. It is, indeed, very interesting and instructive. The glass displays were very lovely. Because a docent was with a group ahead of us we almost missed half the exhibits which, we were told when we were mistakenly leaving, numbered 18. But when you go through the entire collection you feel you definitely want/need/deserve to see more. I don't regret going but felt a bit cheated at the conclusion. Should be noted that the staff is very, very nice.

It was a wonderful way to explore the work of Dale Chihuly. Fanciful, playful pieces beautifully displayed. Video was great introduction to his work. Docent was very informative. This beautifully designed building adds to the art treasure of St. Petersburg. I wish we had had time to explore the Morean Arts Center while we were there. Definitely worth a stop if you can.

Another venue confirming St. Pete's position as an arts destination for the Tampa Bay area, both for viewers and glass artists themselves, who are now flocking to the area.

Whether you have seen many Chihuly exhibits or are viewing his glass work for the first time, this is worth a visit. It is an amazing exhibit! They have an excellent range of his work, several of the exhibits bring gasps from the visitors. I plan a second visit.

If you like glass art, lots of colors, amazing assemblies of unusual glass, this is for you. Art glass imitates nature in ways you will not expect. Film is very informative too. I like that Chihuly is a gifted inventor who seems humble and is exploring his medium without a lot of personal hype. One piece of art leads to another--it's an adventure, it's an experiment.
