The Basics

Explore the career of glass artist Dale Chihuly and take in his many sculptures in the Exhibition Hall, watch videos about his art in the Theater, and stroll through the sculpture garden. Then, admire the museum’s centerpiece—a 40-foot (12-meter) glass-covered building with Chihuly’s famous flower-like sculptures hanging from the ceiling. Visit as part of a private tour package or a self-guided experience; the museum sells both stand-alone tickets and packages that include a trip to the iconic Space Needle.
