My husband and I only decided to check this out because there was a combo ticket deal with the Space Needle. I had no idea what kind of museum this was or what we would see. When we stepped inside, I was surprised to find out that this was the same artist that did the glass ceiling at the Bellagio. I never knew his name but now I do! Everything in this museum is amazing! You are allowed to take pictures which is even better. There is an indoor and outdoor portion of the museum where you can see various types of Chihuly's glass works. It's a smaller museum that you can get through pretty quickly but it's definitely a must see! There is also a nice and short video that you can watch as well.

“feast for the eyes”

The Chihuly garden and glass is right next door to the Space Needle. The pieces inside and out in the garden are amazing. Watch the short videos of the artist in a small theatre inside the museum. Even people who are not museum lovers will like this.

“The Brilliance and Clarity of Glass Art”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

It's rare to have a museum created for a visionary artist while the artist is still alive, and able to help develop and maintain the exhibits. That is exactly what you get with this inspiring museum. Dale Chihuly is undoubtedly a visionary artist, and fortunately very much still alive and involved. If you've seen the lobby at the Belaggio in Vegas, you've seen his work. What he does with glass and color is beyond amazing.
So many of the works are awe inspiring. His ability to work with such a fragile and un-forgiving medium and create works on such a grand scale is worth the time spent admiring this museum.
I suggest you pair this with a meal at the fantastic restaurant connected to museum called "Collections Cafe."
Not only was the food fantastic, but it houses some of the artists collections of things like old radios, flying accordions (yes, that's right, I said flying accordions), cameras, toys and more. Each table has a different collection built into the table. It's very cool and the food was fantastic.

“Very Impressive.........”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

We did not know what to expect when we came here. I have seen Chiluly"s work in Bellagio (Las Vegas) and was blown by it.

The glass exhibit exceeded my expectation. The genius of the man was oozing from all his glass creation.- the intricacies of the colors and the shapes is breath taking.

I was not so impressed with the garden although it is very unusual and nicely presented.

A visit is a MUST for those artistically inclined. They also take a picture of you (free) in the "chandelier" room. A very nice token of your visit.

“Perfect Package Deal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

I purchased a Groupon for $75 which included $60 of Food and Drink, Admission for Two to Chihuly Glass and Garden Exhibit, Valet Parking, and a First-Edition Catalogue. This was the best $75 I spent in a long time. The glass exhibit was exquisite and both my husband and myself were in awe of the talent of Dale Chihuly. The sculptures he creates are breathtaking and just amazed at his creations from glass. Watching the movie in the museum was very interesting enabling us to see the venues his talent has taken him all over the world and showed how these masterpieces are put together. Valet parking is $25 so to get this included was great and the dinner was in the museum at Collections Cafe and our meals were perfect. We thought for sure the book included would be a thin catalog, but instead was a hardcover 300 page large book with his many collections around the world. What a fabulous night and would recommend anyone seeing this exhibit if works of glass are of interest.
