Chihuly Garden and Glass in Seattle is an incredible exhibit that the city is really lucky to have.
In researching what things to do and see in Seattle, it didn’t take long before Chihuly Garden and Glass popped up in search results. It’s currently rated as the top attraction in Seattle on Trip Advisor.
Regular tickets cost $24 if you don’t live in King County, where Seattle is located. The price is on the higher end of how much I’ve paid for an attraction, so I opted to purchase a Seattle City Pass instead. It’s $79 for admission to five top attractions, which brings down the cost of each one to about $16. It’s a great deal and I’d recommend it for those who plan on spending a couple of days there. But even if a City Pass option weren’t available, I would have been happy to pay $24 because the exhibit offers such a unique experience 🙂
Chihuly Garden and Glass isn’t very big, but because everything is so colorful and intriguing, I got carried away admiring several of the works for minutes at a time. I probably spent about an hour appreciating the whole place 😀
The glass art at this exhibit are all creations of Dale Chihuly, a Tacoma, Washington native whose work can be found at over 200 museum collections across the globe.
When I stopped to think about which works were my favorite at this exhibit, it was a real challenge because everything was so different.
Basically, everything at Chihuly Garden and Glass was a highlight, though I did spend the biggest chunk of my time sitting inside the glasshouse.
While you’re there, a photographer can take a high-resolution photo of you that you can later retrieve online for free. The small catch is that you have to enter your email address and complete a quick survey to get it.
The glasshouse is the last place inside the building before you exit into the glass garden. It can be easy to lose track of time meandering through the pathways and wondering how Dale Chihuly managed to create such a wide variety of beautiful glass plants.
