What You Can Expect

Chihuly Garden and Glass Exhibit in Seattle

Explore the Chihuly Gardens and Exhibits

Dale Chihuly has exhibited his mesmerizing blown-glass sculptures all over the world, from Venice to Jerusalem to London. Learn about Chihuly’s fascinating artistic process and carefully arranged displays of vibrant glass sculptures, Seattle’s Chihuly Garden and Glass tells the story of the famed artist’s celebrated career.

Explore the eight-room exhibition hall showcasing Chihuly’s works over the years, including his early experiments inspired by Native American blankets, the glass starfish and anemones in his Sealife collection and the flower-like sculptures of his Mille Fiori project. You’ll be amazed by his most recognizable works, his chandeliers, which typically look like an explosion of tangled glass tentacles. These masterpieces have found a home in scores of museums, office buildings and hotels such as the Bellagio in Las Vegas.

The delicate interplay of light, shadow and color becomes even more apparent when you enter the glasshouse, a stunning 40-foot-tall (12.2 meters) structure housing one of the artist’s largest suspended glass installations.

Continue your tour through the garden, where lush trees and plants frame more of his striking works, including icicle-like clusters and Sun, an eye-popping structure made up of more than 2,000 yellow and orange glass elements.

Flash photography is permitted throughout Chihuly Garden and Glass, and there are also roving photographers who will take pictures of you that you can receive by e-mail at no cost. Grab a bite to eat (own expense) at Collections Café, which offers gourmet bites, craft beers and premium local wines. You can even purchase a Chihuly work of your own from the bookstore!

This is the best museum by far, I wish I had an opportunity to have seen the glass sculptures in the garden lit up at night. Every room was filled with awe-inspiring art, sculpture. I have always loved Chihuly's work and blown glass sculptures. The bookstore was filled with so much, hard to decide what to buy. Everyone who passes through Seattle must see this museum.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

This was an awesome experience. Every piece exciting. We have a Chihuly in St. Petersburg, Florida which is beautiful to see and this one in Seattle carries it to the extreme of beauty in glass.
