Chihuly Garden and Glass - Seattle, WA

Chihuly Garden and Glass - Seattle, WA - do NOT miss this on your trip to Seattle. The most AMAZING art exhibit I've ever seen. The photographs don't do it justice. I could have spent the entire day here.

This Spring we made a quick trip to Seattle. We only spent two full days in Seattle, but we were able to pack a lot into those days. My favorite thing we did during our trip was a visit to the Chihuly Garden and Glass Gallery. 

My first experience with Chihuly glass was in Las Vegas. I fell in love with the ceiling in the lobby at the Bellagio. The next time I stumbled upon Chihuly glass was on our tour at the Makers Mark Distillery in Kentucky. They have a ceiling full of beautiful Chihuly glass flowers. 

While researching things to do in Seattle, I found the Chihuly Garden and Glass gallery. It was right next to the Space Needle, so I put it on our list.

O-M-G! You MUST put this on your bucket list. It was the most AMAZING art exhibit I've ever seen. 

I am walking you through the gallery in this post. The photographs don't do it justice. I could have spent the entire day here. So incredibly beautiful.

Don't miss the opportunity for a selfie in a Chihuly glass ball with the Space Needle!

I oohed and aahed my way through the entire gallery. It was SO amazing!
It was the highlight of our Seattle trip. 
DO NOT miss this when you go to Seattle!


You can purchase tickets ahead of time. We just bought them when we got there and didn't have any issues. I would plan on at least a half a day to do the Space Needle and the Chihuly Garden and Glass. I'd love to come back at night next time!

  1. I live in Seattle. I'm glad you liked his exhibit. I agree, his glass art is amazing. This exhibit has only been there for like 5 years. But it adds a lot to the area around the space needle.

  4. OH MY GOSH, we were just in Seattle last month to board an Alaska cruise. I told the folks in our group that there was no way I was going to miss going to Chihuly G&G. Luckily, our hotel was just down the steep hill so we walked up. If you find yourself back there, the tickets are good for a whole year. What a treat to see his wonderful work. I live in Pittsburgh and our Phipps Conservatory had an exhibit and was able to secure the funds to keep several pieces. Your photos are beautiful, too!

  5. His glass is so beautiful - I didn't know about this garden - thanks for sharing it. We have a fantastic piece of his art glass sculpture at our art museum here in Wichita, KS, and a glass balcony which has pieces of his glass within it and you can walk out on top the balcony. Also, last year our Wichita Symphony Orchestra performed "Bluebeard's Castle" which Chihuly glass sculptures are a major character. It was really incredible! http://kmuw.org/post/feast-senses-awaits-audiences-bluebeard-s-castle

  6. Too bad you didn't have a little more time. You good have driven 40 miles south to Tacoma, the city Chihuly was born, raised and became famous. There are installations and show pieces all over town, but the best of it is down at the Glass Museum/Chihuly Bridge.
