The photos on the website and brochures do not do this attraction any favours. It is much more awe inspiring that you would imagine. I literally gasped when I entered each room in the gallery. It is definitely one of the highlights in Seattle. There is also a theatre with a selection of repeating videos to show you the creative process of Chihuly and his adventures around the world. Out in the garden, I had to get very close to work out what was glass and what was foliage. Incredibly lifelike! The downtown monorail takes you straight there and it is next door to the Space Needle so you can get a combo ticket for both. Don’t be put off by the monorail. It is only one stop. It’s quick, cheap and takes only a few minutes. Foolproof.
