Owner description: Located in the heart of Seattle, Chihuly Garden and Glass provides a look at the inspiration and influences that inform the career of artist Dale Chihuly. Through the exhibition’s eight interior galleries, lush outdoor garden and centerpiece Glasshouse visitors will experience a comprehensive look at Chihuly's most significant series of work. With both day and night experiences, and full-service dining in the adjoining Collections Café, this long-term exhibition offers a unique experience rain or shine.

The Chihuly Garden and Glass was a fantastic experience. I was told an hour was sufficient to go through the exhibit. I suggest 1 1/2 hours, especially if you want to take your time and also watch the videos.
Dale Chihuly is truly incredible when it comes to glass design. Each gallery chronicles a different time period and inspiration, from basket forms to sealife, chandeliers and ikebana. Pictures can not do the works justice. It must be seen in person to appreciate it but take your camera. Taking photos is allowed.
If you have a smartphone, you can listen to an audio tour as you go through. They provide complimentary headphones. I was fortunate enough to be able to go through as a tour guide explained his various works.
It is also something to experience with others, as you will get a different perspective and open your eyes to things may have otherwise missed.

The glass is simply amazing! To make the tour really come alive though, you need to have a guide. Amy was our guide and she's the only glass blower who is a guide. Ask for her. She's incredible. Her enthusiasm is contagious and her knowledge vast.

You will get a lovely color-overload experience as it is truly eye candy in it's finest form. A very worth-it experience, and if you are photographer, it is a must-see.

My only reason for not giving it the full 5 stars, is that I find the price to be a little too high for the amount of time it took to see every exhibit/installation (even though I can appreciate what it takes to insure and anti-earthquake all of those fragile pieces, not to mention the amount of time it takes to install each piece).

This was a real treat! We loved the museum, and we really loved the restaurant!

The waitress was wonderful, (she has a son and cool earrings from Claire's, can't remember her name).

The staff at the museum was also very friendly and knowledgeable.

Just go to see the glass and to eat!

It is amazing what can be done with glass in the hands of a master! The outdoor exhibit is stunning, especially with the Space Needle as a backdrop. Definitely worth the visit!
