I had only seen Chihuly's work in the Belagio hotel in Las Vegas, so I am not studied on his work, his projects or his periods. Even still, anyone can appreciate the fantastic artistry of the work on display at Chihuly. Even my husband who was initially not enthusiastic about going really enjoyed it. The glass house with the work you see in all the photos was closed for a private event, so that was disappointing, but the other galleries and the garden were still worth it. Kind of pricey, but so was the other touristy things we did in Seattle. Definitely worth a go.

“Amazing Artist”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

The work of Chihuly is breathtaking. The site also has videos of Chihuly and his work which were quite interesting. While this is not an inexpensive outing, it was so unusual that it was worth the time and money.

“Beautiful glass displays unlike any other!”
Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

This museum has some of the most beautiful blown glass displays but it is a little expensive. My husband and I took our two children and it cost us $65.00 including tax. It's not a big museum and younger children would probably be bored but my 8 and 10 year olds thought it was fun. It's definitely a nice place to visit once. You can get up close to the displays but you can't touch them (for obvious reasons) so parents of very young children should be aware that this is not a good place for children who like to run around and touch things.

“Chihuly - A Glass Exhibit Beyond Description!”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

I had to drag my husband to this exhibit at the Seattle Center as he said, "Who wants to see a bunch of glass?" As soon as we walked in the entrance to the exhibit, he gushed, "Wow! Everyone should see this!" I heard comments like this from several other tourists that were seeing this exhibit for the first time! This exhibit has only been open for a year and it is already rated in the top 25 exhibits inn the United States! What talent this Dale Chihuly has....I wish everyone could have the pleasure of enjoying his remarkable talent! Words can not express the amazing designs that this man has produced over the years! Baskets, Flowers, Wooden boats with glass designs, flower gardens, ceilings with lit flowers, and the amazing glass house with flowers enlightened by the natural beauty of the sun! Do not miss this amazing exhibit! I am now able to identify Chihuly Glass anywhere I might see it around the world!

“Incredible! Real talent in a fantastic display”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

If you don't appreciate art, you will after this. Go in the afternoon then go to dinner and come back in the evening and see the same art in a different light. Incredible showing. Worth every dollar.
