If you are in Saint Petersburg, do yourself a favor and visit the Chihuly Collection. The gallery is relatively small yet the glass pieces are spectacular. I would recommend about 45 minutes or so depending on your level of interest. It is currently located along the waterfront and near the Museum of Fine Arts. The Dali Museum is not far.... More

First of all, the location of the Chihuly collection will be moving to or has already moved to another location. The collection itself is impressive, & for those of you who dislike being overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of art objects in a museum, this is the place for you. It is small & intimate but not wanting. It provides... More

We have seen some of Chihuly's garden installations but this small museum gave a broader picture of the highly skilled and creative glass worker. Convenient to add on to visits to the nearby Fine Arts and Dali museums. Parking can be a challenge.

Yeah, yeah, I know, how could I say that Dale Chihuly is mediocre? That's actually not what I'm saying at all. Look, I know Dale Chihuly is world famous, and lost an eye in a terrible accident, but honest to God, he hasn't done anything different in ages. If you've seen one Chihuly exhibit you've seen them all. So bottom... More

Chihuly is a unique artist. His glass creations on exhibit are extraordinary. This is one of my favorite places and have brought people from all over the world to admire the talent. If you can take a docent led tour you will learn more about the artist and the specific pieces in this gallery for deeper appreciation. My favorite is... More

I adore this place and feel as though it is one of the greatest gifts in the community. The pieces are breathtaking and unbelievable. I try to schedule my visit on a day where it is not too crowded so I can spend extra time enjoying the pieces but occasionally (on the weekend) it is a bit too crowded and... More

I was so excited to see the installation in St. Petersburg. I love the Chihuly collections in the botanical gardens and thought this would be a larger collection.. But it is very small.. And definitely does not do his work justice..

From the "Persian Flowers" on the "Sunset Persian Wall" to the "Ruby Red Icicle Chandelier" the "Float Boat" and the Spectacular "Mille Fiori". Dale Chihuly takes glass to a new level. Being introduced to his work at the Bellagio we have seen many of his works displayed throughout the country. This is a small collection of exquisite works preserved and... More
