Chihuly Garden and Glass
The Chihuly Garden and Glass museum turned out to be a pleasant surprise on our tour of downtown Seattle. After a day of sightseeing, we still had a few hours left to utilize. We turned to TripAdvisor, which has proven to be a great resource on this trip, and found that the number one attraction in Seattle is the Chihuly exhibit. Despite stellar reviews from 4,988 people (!), I was still a bit wary that this would be a total tourist trap. After all, it’s located at the bottom of the Space Needle.
But with nothing to lose, other than the $21 admission fee, we figured we’d give it a go. If you’re a fan of art and sculpture, you will immediately fall in love with the brightly colored pieces filling the exhibit. So inventive and creative!
But the real star of the show, in my opinion, was the outdoor garden, which was truly like walking through a technicolor wonderland. The works were enhanced by the soft glow of lights against the dark night sky; I definitely suggest checking out the exhibit at night to get the full effect!
