An amazing and beautiful exhibition of craft glass. I'm not usually impressed by this sort of stuff but the scale, variety and lighting of these very elegant glass sculptures is amazing. The gardens, with glass and flowers contrasting and blending, are also very relaxing - if it wasn't for the traditional Seattle drizzle!

A great way to spend a couple of hours. Take your time strolling through the museum. Part of the museum is a theater with several short films about Chihuly - take the time to watch them, they are interesting. Take plenty of pics, some of the most beautiful colors! Also great is the fact that you can buy your ticket via a kiosk outside, will save you tons of time. You can also buy a joint ticket for the space needle and the museum. One fun tip: in the garden in the afternoon there is a blue glass ball that has a beautiful reflection of the space needle. it is one of my favorite pictures from my trip to Seattle.

Photos cannot do this exhibition justice. As I wandered from room to room my reaction was a continual WOW. Then to head out into the Garden and see Glass sculptures matching the flower gardens - that was beautiful. If I had more time in Seattle, I would have loved to have visited again.

We took the monorail to the park, which was fun way to start the afternoon. The garden and glass were just marvelous. Loved the shapes and colors and combined with complimentary landscape, it was really great. It happened to be a warm sunny day, great for photos. I read that it is good to visit at night with lights, but sunset was at 8:30 and the place closes at 7pm.
We bought the package tickets and went up the Seattle needle. Interesting. Good views.

tip - do not try to take beverages into the garden.

We are not so into this type of thing that we wanted to read everything and stare at each piece for a long time. So, this did not take very long for us to go through. However, we enjoyed it. The glass is so colorful. Some of the displays are on black mirrored platforms, and the contrast with the brightly colored glass is beautiful (and makes for great photos). The glass is also beautiful amidst the color-coordinated plantings in the garden. We had lunch at the Collections Cafe then walked through the exhibits. It made for a very pleasant time.
