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.

  • Amazing, each room had something new and stunning on exhibit! The only disappointing thing is that they closed an hour earlier than the winter hours posted on their website so I only had 45 minutes. I...  more »
  • I've been fortunate enough to see a small Chihuly Exhibit in Pittsburgh. I thought it was fantastic and then I came here. Wow! It's just amazing and breathtaking at the same time. Go to visit. If this...  more »
  • We did not use the glass museum on the spur of the moment and Yes. The Museum has a number of rooms with different types of installations, each one more beautiful and colorful. Fortunately there was a camera. The yard was also puutarhaassa trees and shrubs mixed in with different colors of glass objects.

  • This place is pricey and my wife and I hardly ever enjoy spending up to $20 to simply walk around a place. We went for it on this place and we will never regret it. So much incredible art work. We couldn't hold back our amazement as we walked into each room. We have encouraged others to go now as well. The tour is well worth it, but you are going to want to buy something in the end so you can take a little piece back to your home.
  • What a beautiful & peaceful experience, the art in here is phenomenal! I've been wanting to visit for quite some time because there are a couple of pieces on display at a green house I frequent. My favorite part was watching the glass blowing demonstration, they were very thoughtful in explaining how everything is done & the science / mechanics behind everything. I would recommend stopping by when they are making their little bowl. It really makes you think about the many hours that goes into each enormous piece that they have on display there. If you are in Seattle do not skip this place!
  • I enjoyed my visit. One of its kind. So much to learn and enjoy. They also conduct short workshops daily for its visitors to show how glass pieces are made. If you love art and creativity, you will love in love with this place.
  • The glass work is exquisite! Absolutely one of my favorite sites in Seattle. I especially liked the glass scuputres that were mixed into the unique landscape. I would recommend taking the hour to watch the glass blowers at work in the community glass center. Such great talent and insight.
  • You'll never look at glass the same again after you see what Dale Chihuly has created. The Chihuly Garden and Class should absolutely be on your list of places to visit in Seattle. You can spend an hour here easily looking around. If you watch the glass blowing demonstration and film then count on two hours here. The location is easy to find, just look for the Space Needle.

Where to stay in Seattle

Famous for its architecture, Seattle's downtown area features a range of lodging options, including high-end hotels offering expensive rooms with views over Elliott Bay. Remember that despite their prices, many hotels in this waterfront district provide rather small rooms. If you need more space but don't want to break the bank, head out of downtown to some of the city's outlying neighborhoods. Seattle's diverse suburbs offer affordable bed and breakfasts, providing you with all the comforts of home and allowing you to see what local life is really like.
