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.

  • Very unique, visually stunning art. Overpriced considering the size of the gallery and that it can be viewed all within 45 minutes (including photo opportunites). 
  • We purchased admission to Chihuly Garden and Glass as part of a package with the Space Needle. It was a great experience: sure, it may be small, and you can see Chihuly's work almost everywhere you go...  read more »
  • I had never heard of Chihuly before arriving in Seattle, but it was included on my "See It All" city pass, so I went in order to get my money's worth and to kill some time. It was absolutely beautiful...  read more »
  • Had a great time here! It just so happened that the weekend I planned to visit Seattle, the Chihuly museum was hosting an anniversary event. It was a nightlife party for $17, which was cheaper than the normal admission price (uh, WOW). OUTDOOR GARDEN- Try to visit the outdoor garden in daylight before going through the museum and returning outside at dusk/night. I personally suggest walking through the garden at dusk for that golden hour lighting -- photographers know what I mean (; When you walk through at dusk/night, try to find the one black glass sphere piece that has an awesome reflection of the Space Needle! INSIDE THE MUSEUM- So. Awesome. "Glass Forest" gives a cool illusion with neon lighting and glossy black backdrop. Chihuly integrated his basket weaving skills to his glass blowing art. The glass art ceiling is absolutely gorgeous. And the boat installation is my faaavorite. ANNIVERSARY EVENT- 2 complimentary wine tastings per person, a few bites traveling about, a cocktail bar, and a photo booth! Fun, fun, fun. But to be completely honest, the normal $21 admission price is a bit steep, esp sans event. $17 for the evening was just peeerfect! But if you've never been, fork over $21 and enjoy the exhibit.
  • Chihuly Garden and Glass was the stop I was least excited for on our Seattle CityPASS tour. I was pleasantly surprised at how great it was! The art is often staggering in size. Really fantastic, whimsical stuff. I would recommend paying this place a visit.
  • Art comes alive at the Chihuly Garden with vibrantly colored glass displays. I enjoyed some rooms more than others of course but I had a great time overall. The tour lasts about 30 minutes and is worth it but is only available twice daily. The garden was probably my favorite. The five short films available at the end of the visit were interesting and educational. We especially enjoyed the "Making a Chandelier" film.
  • The Garden was incredible! It was a lot smaller than we expected & seemed quite expensive for the amount of time we spent inside! The artist also was quite a "collector"..& the "Collections Cafe" was one of our best experiences & best food in Seattle! We were amazed & stunned by the superb service! Going to Chihuly? Make sure you go to the Collections Cafe which adjoins it! Fabulous!
  • Really cool museum. There are only a few rooms, but an enormous amount of art. I'm glad we got a resident discount, as the entry price is pretty steep for the length of the visit, but it's a great option for taking out of town guests.
