“Stunning, remember to watch the videos before the exit”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

needless to say by the other comments, this place is stunning.

Tip: Buy the combination tickets if you are visiting other places like the space needle right beside it to save couple bucks

also, there is video room right before the exit. EACH VIDEO IS DIFFERENT. so sit and stay there for about 20min or so and rest up while you see all the short clips on the glass displays, inspirations and creations.

“glass as nature and the best of human imagination”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

my friend has been in Seattle for two years and she claimed chihuly garden didn't sound interesting enough. she was floored and ashamed when we got there. the glass art is spectacular and it's such a relaxing gallery/park. and it's great for people of all ages.
just go! and do not forget to visit the cafe and order the fried cheese curds and octopus salad. just don't sit at the table with doll faces (creepy).

“Colorful Art!”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Chihuly Gardens is a wonderful display of Dale Chihuly's Glass works. Located at the base of the Space Needle in the Seattle Center, it really is amazing. You start out following a trail of rooms featuring big, colorful displays and with every turn another, more amazing display. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time going from room to room and then outdoors through the glass garden. Stop to watch the short films about Dale Chihuly's work and career. Also, the gift shop offers many nice and interesting gifts and keepsakes. We loved the selection of Chihuly Art Books. It is great they allowed you to take photographs! Our pictures are phenomenal. Also, take advantage of the staff photographers that will snap your picture and give you a card to email yourself a copy for free from the Kiosk. That was a nice unexpected perk.

You can purchase your admission at the Space Needle with a combination ticket including the Space Needle/Chihuly Gardens for $33/adult. Or, they have combination tickets including many other Seattle Center admissions: i.e. zoo, science museum, etc.

“Must see, stunning!”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Absolutely beautiful and amazing art work! Stunning colors!
We wished we could have visited the Seattle Glass Blowing Co. to obtain a better understanding of the techniques used for how glass is blown.
