Chihuly Garden and Glass is Seattle’s premier destination for an artistic yet sober experience into the minds of people of have experience shrooms and acid. However, it comes with a price.
When I entered the Chihuly Garden and Glass, I couldn’t help it, but I was reminded of Alice in Wonderland. The colorful array of glass sculptures throughout the museum accentuated by the lighting created a fantasy type of world. The artist’s creativity could only have been imagined if he was on acid or shrooms. It’s something like the black light posters hanging in a room of a rainbow t-shirt wearing hippie on massive amounts mind altering narcotics.
As I walked from exhibit to exhibit, Dave Chihuly’s brilliance started to dawn on me. It’s incredible how he was able to mold some of the sculptures to resemble plants, flowers and among other things. The highlight of the museum was the massive piece hanging from the roof of the Glasshouse.
The Chihuly Garden and Glass was definitely one of the best contemporary museums I’ve visited in the world. The artist’s ability to showcase his imagination through glass versus canvas was an inspiration to being able to see the world from a different perspective. Here’s a gallery of his work:
It’s definitely worth the visit while in Seattle and I’m glad I visited it with my CityPASS. The CityPASS is the cheapest way to visit Seattle’s landmarks and museum. It saved me about 47% off of the entrance fee and it includes admission to 5 of Seattle’s most popular landmarks.
The admissions to the above could run up to $139 and $88 for adults and children, respectively. Here are the prices of single tickets for each place:
It’s an insane amount of money to pay on top of hotels, food and a plane ticket. However, I saved 64.70 for my ticket, which went towards other things on my Seattle trip. It’s definitely worth it.
