“Awe inspiring”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

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.

“Stunning”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

Have seen some of Dale Chihuly's work in other museums and settings but this is unique for the sheer number and scale of the pieces. Well worth the time

“Beautiful art”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Chihuly Garden and Glass. It is right next to The Space Needle and EMG Museum is nearby as well so very convenient. The art is beautiful just wish I had more time to spend but I was on a time crunch.

“Worth the Trip”

It was beautiful and worth the price of admission. Be sure to check out the café even if you don't eat there.

I have followed Dale Chi'huly for 15 years and this was the most impressive display of his work I have ever viewed in one setting. A MUST see!!
