Chihuly SealifeAs the weather begins to warm there’s no better time to visit Chihuly Garden and Glass. This stunning exhibition in the heart of Seattle Center explores the lifelong work of one of the Pacific Northwest’s most iconic artists.

Experience the cool hues and flowing forms of the Sealife Room. Take in the vibrant colors of the Mille Fiori – a literal garden of glass! The 40-foot tall, 4,500 square foot Glasshouse features a stunning 100-foot long sculpture that serves as the centerpiece to the 1.5 acre exhibition.

Step out into the sunlight to experience glittering glass sculptures amongst fuchsias, daylilies, dogwoods and more. Top this all off with a delicious meal at the Collections Cafe and you’re in for the perfect spring excursion.

Hop on the Seattle Center Monorail at Westlake Center Mall (5th Avenue and Pine Street, 3rd floor) and ride the Monorail to Chihuly Garden and Glass at Seattle Center.  The Monorail provides fast, direct transportation between downtown and Seattle Center. The train departs approximately every 10 minutes.

Visitor Tip: We love visiting Chihuly Garden and Glass in the evening – all the glass is lit up at night. Beautiful! Also, the dessert at the Collections Cafe is amazing!
