About
This must-see museum exhibits creative and colorful blown glass sculptures of renowned artist Dale Chihuly. Eight indoor galleries and lush landscaped gardens feature a mix of new and past significant works. They are awe-inspiring whether you visit during the day, or in the evening when the sculptures are lit up. The highlight here is a 100-foot-long glass sculpture suspended in a glass conservatory—one of his largest ever. Located at the base of the iconic Space Needle, you might want to buy a combined ticket for cost savings or get a Seattle City Pass. – Tripadvisor

    Spendy but worthy
    At $35+ per person, plus pricey nearby parking, a visit to Chihuly Garden and Glass needs to be taken in-step with the cost, but in total the gallery checks all the boxes for fans. Born and raised in Washington this location is probably Chihuly's most comprehensive collection as well as the best "story telling" thanks to guides plus live demonstrations. Expect to spend 45-90 minutes depending on level of interest, but do not miss the greenhouse or "Chihuly Over Venice" areas.

    Well worthwhile
    Sounds a bit weird on reading the various blurbs - but get there, you will be blown away. We were a bit daunted by the admission price for a family of 5 but once done, all agreed was money well spent. The art is brilliant and stunningly presented - and if possible, try to time your visit to catch one of the glass blowing demonstrations, as it was a fascinating insight into the process and the skills involved.

    Beautiful, colorful glasswork
    Excellent collection of Chihuly's work. I've seen some of his pieces elsewhere but this place was so comprehensive likely given that his birthplace was nearby Tacoma. There are both indoor and outdoor displays showcasing the organic glass forms. My husband and I bought an affordable package with tickets to this place and the Space Needle.

    A Hit Will All Ages
    My famly (2 adults, a 15 yo, and a 11 yo) all loved Chihuly. We used City Pass tickets for the garden and wasn't sure how the 11 yo would feel about it. They loved it just as much as everyone else. Dale Chihuly is amazingly talented. We loved taking pictures and watching the live glass blowing demonstration that took place in the Garden courtyard. I would recommend this to anyone!

    Very neat museum.
    Don't plan on spending a lot of time in this museum. We went on Thursday afternoon in November and while it was well attended, it was not crowded and moved very quickly. Go ahead and schedule the rest of the museums and attractions in the area for the same day.

    Unique Glass Sculptures
    Visited this venue as it is next door to the Space Needle, and we able to book both sights at same time online. Totally unprepared for what we saw. Huge displays of sculpted glass arranged in pyramids, chandeliers and free-standing exhibits. Spent almost two hours enjoying displays. Also watched six short but informative films about the man and his glass. Watched outdoor demonstration of glass making. Facility has large store with numerous items for sale.

    Fascinating
    Highly recommend this place! I love all things blown glass and this was fascinating! So much to see and lots of cool iterations, you never get bored of it. Try to sit a bit in a room to get some time alone with the pieces! We enjoyed this trip a lot and would highly recommend.

    A "must see" for any visit to Seattle
    I'm from Tacoma, Chihuly's hometown, and have visited his museum in Tacoma, which is a terrific place. With that being said, I wholeheartedly endorse a trip to his Garden and Glass Museum in Seattle, even if you've seen his work somewhere else before. Visited there with my wife as part of our 50th Anniversary "staycation" in Seattle and enjoyed every minute of it. It's simply impossible not to be in awe of his work.

    amazing glass and art
    It's like being Alice in wonderland. Fantastic, other worldly glass creations. Your mind will be blown by the size and beauty of the blown glass. My kids took hundreds of pictures and enjoyed the live glass blowing demo. Inside and outside it was amazing. Loved it!!!

Wow! I wasn't able to stop taking photos of everything I saw. The glass sculptures are located both inside and outside in the garden as the name implies. Completely spectacular.

We were specifically to see the Winter Brilliance display which was hyped to be a lot more than it is. It is one window with glass snow flakes that were impressive but not as expansive as intimated from the description.

I first/last visited here ten years ago and I can't tell if it's changed but, as it was fabulous then, so it is now. I used my Seattle CityPASS to enter and joined the throngs late on a Friday afternoon wandering through the eight galleries, glasshouse and outside int the gardens, marvelling at how all of that glass came to be and then suspended above and gathered around us.
He's a unique talent and I've seen his work in countless hotels and museums all over the country.
Coming here, to his passion project in his home state, is well worth it. I combined the visit with the Space Needle which looms overhead.
A definite Seattle Must Do!

Amazing! Must see! Stunning beauty! I am just baffled at how they get the colors and textures and shapes from glass. To see how it starts to how it finishes is just incredible.

Not to be missed if you’re in the Seattle area.

Chihuly Garden and Glass is a magical and enchanting place.

It’s difficult to imagine how these tremendous, elaborate pieces were placed into this building.

The pieces shown here are captivating. They have movement, as they are still, and they will move you.

Dale Chihuly will always be the master of glass.

This place is amazing. It’s a must do in Seattle. If you’ve ever been to the Bellagio in Vegas you have seen this artwork in the lobby. Loved it!!!!

What an amazing place beneath the Space Needle. The colors were totally awesome. We also watched glass blowing. We took the monorail to and from.

I have seen chihulys art work before and fell in love with all of them. But this exhibit on particular is my absolute favorite!!! There are sculptures that will take your breath away, and his talent is unmistakable! I was lucky to arrive on a day that there was a tour guide that was taking the group all around the whole exhibit and told us about this pieces and about chihuly himself. There was also a in person demonstration where everyone got to see the process of creating blown glass, which was a case in that demonstration. The gift shop was expensive in my opinion but they had some wonderful and beautiful things to purchase of money isn’t an issue for someone. Even though I went by myself I thoroughly enjoyed myself, and would highly recommend anyone in the area who loves art to definitely check out this exhibit.
