“Lots of glass”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

This was nice, but not something I would consider if limited on time and had to make other choices. The glass sculptures are pretty. I enjoyed the replicas on the bridge leading there. I liked the glass in the fountain.

“See the Glass Blowers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

Fun to watch the glass blowing demonstrations done by the visiting artists. The other displays were okay but don't expect too much. There are just as many beautiful pieces on the glass bridge outside, and you get the bonus of getting to watch the trains pull into or out of the yard.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

What beautiful exhibits and how wonderful to see the Chihuly glass! We were mesmerized by the exhibits above the freeway -- the Chihuly Bridge of Glass! You can also see Chihuly Gardens next to the Seattle Space Needle!

“Chihuly this is not.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

Although they did plaster his name everywhere... The only Chihuly piece I recognized was outside. All the pieces inside were... ok.

If you want to see cool glass art just go to the one in Seattle.
