“SMALL BUT COMPLETE”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

If you are a Chihuly fan, this museum has examples of all his various kinds of art. There are sketches made before the glass is created. It's charming. Good choices in the gift shop too.

“Must See...loved it!!!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Walking through this dreamland of glass sculpture was wonderful!
I have never seen anything quite like it in all my travels and I loved every part of this small but evocative collection.
I walked through twice I loved it so much!
The docents were friendly and helpful!
This is a Highly Recommend on my list!

“absolutely beautiful”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Not cheap, but worth the money. My six-year old loved it too. Walking to the collection along the St. Pete waterfront was part of the fun.

“Chihuly in St. Petersburg,Fl”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We arrived just in time to join the last guided tour. The tour guide was very good, very knowledgable and quite amusing as well as passionate about glass blowing.. The tour was short, it is not a large museum but it gives you an opportunity to go back through at your own pace. The personnel at the desk were quite helpful, even gave us some suggestions on where to eat and also find the best gelato in town. They have a video running on a loop that is very interesting. A must watch. Have been to Tacoma, Chihuly's hometown on the West Coast. The display there is immense and well worth seeing if you are around the Seattle area.

“Love Chihuly!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

I've seen a few other Chihuly exhibits and this one was just as amazing. The boat was particularly stunning. A good selection of works that really shows the different pieces he's known for. There is a glass blowing workshop part in the afternoon. The gift shop has some nice Chihuly books and postcards. The staff was very friendly and even gave me a coupon for the admission to the Museum of Fine Art after I told them I was headed there next.
