At our lunch in Plaza Garibaldi we were tossing around what we wanted to do for the rest of the day. Go back to Pike Market for a few things, go to the zoo or up the Space Needle? We were not sure how long King Tut and the science center would take so we had not made any plans.
We settled on the Chihuly Museum since it looked interesting and was right up where we had been. What a great decision it was, Chihuly ended up being one of our favorite trip activities!
The Chihuly Gardens and glass is located almost under the Space Needle. We had seen a little of the glass installations in the garden as we passed on our way to the Science Center courtyard entrance. They looked really interesting which helped in our decision to visit.
I had seen single pieces of Chihuly but never a large collection like this. I loved the bowl room where you sat under the glass ceiling. And in the garden area we walked it in one direction, and the walked it back the other direction. You always noticed something new!
This was my favorite large piece.
IF you get to Seattle and have time please visit the Chihuly Garden and Glass. You will not be disappointed. I know there is currently an installation at Denver but I have not been able to find the time to visit it. His work is outstanding!
