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.

  • Simply amazing! as the own Chihuly speaks in documentary is presented, the art imitating nature and spectacularly! Pay a ticket that entitles the internal and external exposure. Even if you can't make every shot count. raining Actually there's no way to explain and even see in pictures, the feeling of being there is only. At the end has a nice little store but extremely expensive.

  • Incredibly beautiful and interesting glass exhibit. There is a Native American collection of photos, baskets, blankets and Chihuly glass. Very beautiful. The way the indoor exhibits are displayed and the lighting used really brings out the best in his glass works. Absolutely stunning. Nighttime is also a visual delight as the art glass is illuminated. The gardens filled with his art glass are enchanting. Don't miss this amazing exhibit. There is also the Collections Cafe where you can have a meal or snack and there is a gift shop.
  • This was a fun exhibit to go to. I didn't know much about glass blowing art. Dale Chihuly is a one of a kind artist. It was neat to discover that the Pacific Northwest is considered the glass art capitol of the world. We got in for $19 a person. I think the price could have been a little better, but all together it was a great experience. TIP: There is a coat check, we left a lot of items there. As tourist's you carry around a lot of stuff, and it's good to be able to put stuff down.
  • I was totally amazed at the amount of glass art that was there was truly amazing. I have never seen such beautiful work as these artist has accomplished. There are many different types and styles. This is definitely a handicap friendly museum and garden. The signage is clear from the road. Below I have given you photos of just some of this beautiful art work. Enjoy!
  • Museum is beautiful. The coat check was free which made it a lot easier to enjoy the museum. We went through it pretty quickly, less than 2 hours. There are video clips of Chihuly creating his sculptures in a small theater area. Each clip is 5 minutes long. I would recommend watching at least a few of them because they really complemented the experience of walking through the exhibits.
  • Love this place. Definitely one of the best destinations in downtown Seattle. It is amazing no matter the time of day or the weather. I recommend seeing it both during the day and then again at night. The garden part of the exhibit is most breath-taking at night but can hold it's own during the day too, rain or shine. A true gem that Seattle is lucky to have. It is the top destination in Seattle and for good reason. If you love color and/or beautiful things, this is the place for you!
