Chihuly Garden and Glass

Admire the riotous color of this museum’s exhibits, which feature kaleidoscopic glass sculptures from a renowned local glass artist.


Chihuly Garden and Glass houses the mesmerizing artwork of renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly, which comes in a dazzling array of varied colors. Look for stained-glass tendrils curling out of the ground and translucent petals hanging in the arched greenhouse. Inspect the intricate details of Chihuly’s work at this eye-popping exhibit at the Seattle Center.

Discover more about Dale Chihuly, a Washington resident who began working with glass during his studies at university in the ‘60s, before honing his craft with the masters in Venice. His work became internationally recognized and was praised for the way it pushed the boundaries of glass as a medium. In 2012, Chihuly Garden and Glass was opened, celebrating his achievements.

Learn about the processes behind Chihuly’s sculpting in the exhibit’s theater, where short videos offer insights into the artistry behind these glass pieces. Watch glass being blown and listen to interviews from the sculptor himself.

Start in the Glasshouse, where you’ll find the 100-foot (30-meter) long bouquet of falling flowers caught in stasis. Return in the evening for a totally different view when the art is illuminated with light.

New Zealand burrs, Japanese cedars and German irises are among the many global plants that grow in the gardens, living around and alongside the glasswork. Don’t miss The Sun, a striking sphere of yellow and red tentacles that stands over the gardens.

Explore the eight indoor galleries, which demonstrate the variety in Chihuly’s work. Walk beneath ceilings designed to bathe those who stroll beneath them in color. Suspended sculptures are installed above walls where his paintings and drawings hang.

Chihuly Garden and Glass is open daily. The exhibit is located in the Seattle Center and can be found directly beneath the iconic Space Needle. Buy a package admission ticket for access to both attractions. Regular buses run to adjacent streets several times a day. Find metered parking in three garages in the Seattle Center.
