Words cannot describe the beauty of this collection. I didn't want to leave this place. You have to just get out there and to see it for yourself. Reading reviews of this place just doesn't do it any justice.

The museum is not large, but the glass is really spectacular! Our volunteer docent gave us lots of information about the glass and the artist! The movie was also very interesting and we are glad we stayed to watch it. the tickets are pricey $15.00, so if you are trying to watch your pennies, go inside the shop for some examples of his glass and its free.

I wandered in to kill some time as I waited to pick up my honey that had a meeting at All Children's Hospital. I was surprised how much I enjoyed the experience. I thought that it was a very small venue for the price they charged, but I did really like what I saw. Dale Chihuly's work is enchanting. I especially liked the short video that showed his installation at the Citadel and the room of undersea like life.

Chihuly's collection of his hand blown Art Glass is beautiful. He is known all over the world for his famous colorful art creations. The Museum is located next door to The 400 Beach Seafood & Tap House and they welcome patrons visiting the Museum.
Beach Drive in St. Petersburg is fortunate to have Chihuly design and build his Museum right here in downtown St. Petersburg.

Before you walk into the collection area, take the time to watch the free video presentation. Chihuly explained his thinking and how he developed various projects around the world. You can observe his staff working in their glass studio and making displays. I would recommend watching it. It was very interesting. The collection does provide a guide to explain the works. Unless you listen to a guide, you will not learn much about the collection itself. The guide offers about a 45 minute detaile tour. We did not have the time to stay with the guided group, so we were very happy to have watched the video presentation. Visually, there are some very beautiful pieces. If you enjoy Chihuly, this will be a pleasant visual experience. Be sure to take advantage of the guided tour.
