“Beautiful but small”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

We got to see the new exhibition before the opening, all stunning pieces of work, but it is a very small collection. The film was more informative than the docent.

No wonder this work is world famous because it is almost out of this world. Have never exerienced such an awesome collection of blown glass in our lives. We have seen plenty of glass blowers in the past but never on the level of Dale Chihuly's unique artwork. Some of the work is so complex and soar over 12' high. You have to stand in awe of them in person because no photo can do them justice.

“very pretty but a very small collection”
Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

We arrived at 11am but were told we have to wait 1 hour because of a media presentation. Great, another dollar worth of quarters for the parking meter. Note: The revised time was not reflected on the web site. Once we got the tickets, we wandered around trying to find where the collection was. This place is very dis-organized. Turns out, you have to go to the other building to see the collection. Who know?

Then when you wall into the building, you have two choices, down a hall which says exit or another hall which has no sign. Which way should you Go? If you guessed the hall with exit sign, you are correct!

Once you finally view the collection, they are absolutely beautiful. One of kind pieces. This was the best part of the visit, but the collection is very small.

We went back to where we purchased the tickets to buy a small glass piece. We were told we would have to go back to the other building to buy it. When we went back to the other building, we were told to go back to the other building. At that point we found the exit and left. We had 1 minute left on the parking meter.

We will not be bringing any friends to this place.

“A bit overpriced”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

I love Chihuly but it's a high-priced admission with a relatively small collection. It was incredibly beautiful but I was disappointed there wasn't more.

“Beautiful glass but a very quick trip”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

We were very excited to take the tour of the collection with the kids but were stunned when it was complete within 30 minutes! Don't get me wrong, the collection is amazing, the staff very knowledgeable but we felt that for the price the 6 of us had paid there should have been a bit more to the tour.
