We've seen Chihuly many times before, but the tour leader made all the difference. He'd worked with Chihuly and explained so much of what went into the process. FABULOUS!

I found this exhibit to be rather sparse for the amount charged for admission. I have seen Chihuly exhibits in Arkansas and Las Vegas that were much more impressive. The guide was abrasive and not as knowledgeable as she should have been. Parking was limited, especially for groups containing handicapped individuals.

The museum isn't massive, but there are stunning pieces of work on display. My favorite piece looked like a landscape... if Dr Seuss was trying to design the floor of one of his mythical oceans. The glass blowing demonstration was impressive, two guys made a beautiful fish vase in under 30 minutes. Small movie area where they show some documentaries... More

We toured the museum with all of its wonderful backlit glass sculpture. Many of the exhibits are similar in style, but vary with a rainbow of colors. The best part was the glass blowing/making demonstration in the back of the gift show across the street! Don't miss this if you go!

And, even if you have seen his work this little gem of a museum will give you a re-cap on his genius and diverse body of work. We have seen installations in 2 cities here in the US as well as his various works in Tacoma, Las Vegas and countless museums yet we still learned about something new here. The... More

The Chihuly is a lovely, little museum. It is nicely arranged and the glass is artfully displayed. There is a movie that describes Chihuly's life and how he has evolved as an artist. Across the street you can enjoy a demonstration of glass blowing which was fun. This museum is not nearly as impressive as the one in Seattle but... More

We went last week during a quick overnight to St. Petersburg. This was one of the highlights of my vacation! We spent almost two hours there. It was a quiet, cool afternoon and not many people were there, so I spent time sitting on the benches soaking in the installations all by myself. Tips: The tourist magazines have a coupon... More

A little difficult finding the building but worth doing. The glass blowing demonstration was also a good adventure.

Chihuly's work is always amazing in its scope. This collection is great in that it provides insight as to how his work is done as well as some background to his life.
