“A delightful suprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

After our ride up the space needle we used our tickets to get a reduced or "upgraded entry" to the Gardens. This is clearly a must see in Seattle, as Chihuly has created an amazing display of glass that resembles flowers and you are taken into 7 exhibit areas which are astounding. Once through those areas you go outside to a garden that combines more glass flowers in a real garden. Words do not do justice a this is a must see in Seattle

Beautiful. A little pricey but you can buy a combined entrance with the Space Needle. They have photographers throughout the exhibit that will take your picture and you can download it to your email or Facebook for free. Really, FREE! If you have the time, go back for the evening viewing when the outside exhibits are illuminated.

“a small museum with some incredible pieces”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

I didn't want to do the Needle or see a King Tut exhibit, but just looking at the outdoor glass sculptures drew me into the museum. We enjoyed the experience and it prompted us to go to a working glass blowing shop in Belltown to see how it is done. Some of his paintings were really interesting and listening to the explanations of his work by the museum guides was very helpful. It was a beautiful day, so it was the perfect size of museum ... I walked through it, enjoyed it, learnt something and wasn't bored and wanting to get out. Well done!

“Amazing Sculptures - need to see this in person”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

Photos don't do this justice. The colors, size and complexity of the pieces need to be viewed in person. It is fanciful and fun!

It would have been neat to have a film of glass being blown and the sculptures being set up. I suppose that might destroy some of the "magic", but you can't help but wonder, how in the world do "they" create these pieces.

“Chiuly Garden and Glass”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

I loved the flow of exhibition. Of course the glass was remarkable. We enjoyed watching the movies about some of his different installations and seeing how he developed his display.
