Chihuly Garden and Glass, Seattle

4.7
Chihuly Garden and Glass features a comprehensive exhibit showcasing the work of Dale Chihuly, a renowned American glass sculptor and entrepreneur. Despite the considerable technical difficulties of working with blown glass, Chihuly uses it as a primary medium for large installations and environmental artwork, some of which you can see at this gallery. The artist's complex and colorful glass sculptures fill the eight-room greenhouse. Stop by the adjacent garden to see a blend of nature and more blown-glass creations.

  • So beautiful, very well displayed! So colorful and interesting. This was part of our visit from Atlanta, so I have seen some of his work at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.  more »

  • This place evokes joy for me. Delight. Everything I see brings joy and delight. Pure magic for the senses. Breathtaking. Magnificent. It should be one of the wonders of the world! The glass displays truly exceeded my expectations. I have seen Chihuly installations before and loved them but these really play with light, color, and form to an exceptional extent. Make sure to also look at the paintings and sculptures along the walls as they are gorgeous but easily overlooked.This museum has wonderful glass exhibits that are one of a kind. The interior exhibits are just as stunning, if not more so, then the gardens. It's like being transported to another world. One of my very favorite places.
  • What an incredible experience! The museum was both indoor and out with lots of films & educational information. Around every corner - the beauty & the grandeur- there are no words. There was someone blowing glass outside that you could observe. Loved the outdoor gardens. Just an amazing experience and I highly recommend checking it out!
  • A single visit to Chihuly Garden and Glass won't be enough to see all there is to see. The creations are beautiful and what catches your eye one trip may cause you to miss something that will capture your imagination the next time you come. Plan to take your time in any event and enjoy the emotions, awe and wonder this art evokes. You've likely seen Chihuly glass creations in other locations or at least photos of the art glass creations, but that won't prepare you for this experience. Enjoy!
  • Amazing! One of a kind place to visit with the family. We purchased a deal to visit both Space Needle and Chihuly Garden and saved a little and I happy we did this because I would not pick this place otherwise (what can you expect from an art glass museums). It turned out to be a great experience! We spent about an hour and a half there and both my kids (5 & 8) were impressed as well. Highly recommend as a family attraction!
  • SO COOL! I had not been to a place like this before, so it was really fun! And we got to see them to cut and sculpt glass... That pic was a pic I took in one of the amazing rooms. I recommend visiting it, especially around sunset, because the glass with the light reflecting off/going through and just being almost under the Space Needle.
