Comments about Smart Destinations Museum of Glass:

Outstanding architecture. Very Informative & professionally presented. I have taken out of town guests, both friends & family 5 times & all have raved about it. There is always something new to see. Having been in Murano, Italy I would say Dale Chihuly's Museum of Glass is outstanding. Have seen his works presented internationally, at Leavenworth, WA & other places. We are blessed to have his works locally & the pedestrian walkway, Bridge of Glass is a marvelous way to present his contemporary art to all who come & for free. I would recommend it as a must to see in Washington.

Very Disappointed!!
By Sandy from Seattle on
Pros:
Nice Store
Cons:
Where's the glass
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Museum of Glass:

I was hoping to see Chihuly glass. hardly any except in the store. LOTS on the bridge or around the city. Don't waste your money. The artists mking glass was interesting...but I can see that on tv. I spent [$] to see very few displays of lots of children's glass designs. Spend your money on the History museum. That was great!
