Chihuly Garden and Glass

Quick facts

Chihuly Garden and Glass is a display featuring Dale Chihuly’s studio glass in the Seattle Center. It opened at the former Fun Forest site in May 2012. The project includes three main components: the Garden, the Glasshouse, and the Interior Exhibits, with major secondary spaces including a 90-seat café with additional outdoor dining, a 50-seat multi-use theater and lecture area, retail and lobby rooms, and substantial beyond-the-Garden public site improvements.

The Glasshouse, the museum’s flagship, is a glass and steel building that features a 100-foot long sculpture that looks like a large replica of something you would see in the coral reefs of the ocean. The epic sculpture consists of individual red, white, yellow, and amber components and is one of the largest suspended creations of Chihuly.
