We loved dropping in! After enjoying the gallery, we had afternoon espressos in the rainy weather at their coffee shop. Very cute and cozy. We wanted to the glass blowing demo, but decided against it with our two year old. The admission for the demo...More

There are several beautiful pieces of the Chihuly collection in the museum which are very nice. There is also a small gift shop. We also went to see the glass blowing demonstration across the street at The Hot Spot which was very informative and interesting....More

This is a lovely small-ish museum in the fantastic Central Arts District of St. Pete. The whole neighborhood is worth spending several hours walking around in, as it has lots of very cool shops and restaurants, but the Morean stands out. We were lucky enough...More

One of the most unique things about St. Petersburg is its loving attention to the arts. The Morean Arts Center is a pillar in this respect - the staff, the artists, the shows...an incredible group of people work there that make this city brighter.

The Chihuly Collection is fairly interesting ... it's nice, but just a lot of blown glass ... probably not for everyone. What's even more interesting is the glass workshop, down the street, which is included in the price of admission (~$20 each). It's amazing to...More

Worth the price of admission. Definitely a learning experience. How could something so hot be so cool.

My husband bought me an hour in the hot shop for Christmas and I loved every minute of it. You work with master glassblower and create a piece of art that you take home with you. A great experience, for sure!

A must see!! Wonderful collection of Chihuly creations on display. Simply fascinating. Once again used the CityPass which included admission to the Hot Spot to view the creation of glass art by the artisans on site. Not the most kid friendly attraction as there is...More
