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.

Chihuly Garden and Glass Reviews
This is a small but powerful exhibit. I listened to the free audio tour on my phone. It took a little over an hour. We also ate at the attached restaurant for lunch and it was also fabulous. more »
This is a gorgeous museum and right next to the Space Needle! If you have never been to one of his museums this is the one to see. It’s got numerous rooms to see and lots of exhibits to marcel at... 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!
