Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web
Chihuly Collection houses the only permanent collection of artist Dale Chihuly, whose glass sculptures have graced the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Louvre. Highlights include the Ruby Red Icicle Chandelier, commissioned specifically for the museum, which hangs from the ceiling. With spikes poking out at all angles, the chandelier resembles a sea anemone. For an in-depth look at Chihuly’s work, take a tour led by one of the museum’s knowledgeable docents. You can buy a combination ticket, which will allow you to finish the experience by stopping by the Glass Studio & Hot Shop to watch glassblowers create new works. Chihuly Collection is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, St. Petersburg Edition.

  • My mother told me to say NOTHING if you can not say anything good. NOTHING that costs $35 to enter!!! 
  • Someone wrote "It takes only 10 minutes" to walk through the museum! If you walk through this exhibit that fast you have truly cheated yourself of an outstanding experience. An exhibit like this need not be exhaustive to be worthwhile, rewarding and inspirational. There is ample seating provided to allow visitors to relax and contemplate the magnificence of the displays. Knowledgeable folks are on hand to explain the significance and derivation of the art. Take your time and enjoy the journey. It will come to an end all too soon for a genuine lover of beauty and creativity.
  • Tried telephoning to get information about your rates. Your phone system never connected me with a live person and when leaving a message, no one ever returned my call. Maybe this one-star review will get someone's attention.
  • Good collection. Would like to see more. The new space will make a big difference
  • Delightful! It's somewhat small but still worth the trip. The glass is gorgeous and the staff is so knowledgeable.
  • Extremely glad we made a visit & took the tour. Our guide was most informative & we loved the collection!
