Chihuly Garden and Glass Seattle
Chihuly's work is awesome in the truest sense of the word--the huge, colorful pieces throughout the museum are just amazing and so different than what you see in most museums.
Easily the best museum in Seattle, this venue artfully showcases unique and transcending pieces atypical of other art museums.

Very tasteful and powerful museum with multimedia artifacts from 9/11 including real artifacts, tv/radio footage and photos make it one of the best memorial museums I've been too.
