Reviewed 21 June 2014

Chihuly is amazing, of course much of his work is done by his apprentices. I do believe he is the visionary, planning, drawing, approving et al. I wanted to go back one evening with a tripod, but that is not allowed, which can be a challenge with low light, however it is beautiful. When I was there I did some low light pictures, while the staff had their backs to me, setting it on the floor and things... they did come out pretty good, with what I was working with.

“Glass a spectacle to behold!”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

We had previously seen the Bridge of Glass and studio in Tacoma. This is an exceptional presentation of his work in indoor and outdoor settings. It shows the breadth of his creativity and workmanship,and above all, the whorl color spectrum. Then there is the glass house with a huge connected piece. Then you go out to a garden which cleverly combines glass and live vegetation to delight the eyes. There are also docents to comment on the exhibits and a film presentation about the history of Chihuly glass. There is a neat little cafe on the grounds called the the Collectibles Cafe. Don't take little ones; but it is a must see for older children.

Amazing glass sculptures! The combination between real plants and the glass plants creates a rare aesthetic that leaves you speechless. I was totally delighted by this experience.

“Absolutely Amazing!”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

I am not very interested in art, but this place blew me away. It is breathtaking and you have never seen anything like it. It only took us about an hour to walk through and take a picture of every piece. Totally worth the trip!

This is a really special place. You won't see anything like this (in this volume) anywhere else. A bit pricey. Easy to get to on public transit.
