This Museum of Glass is a unique artistic inspiration and a place for knowledge for people of all ages. It features amazing glass from the 20th and 21st centuries in its permanent and temporary exhibitions, interactive adventures, and gallery guides. You can explore by yourself or take a tour led by a docent who will give explanatory commentary so that you will get the full benefit of the gorgeous glass and the background of each item. You might see exhibits of special things such as Bohemian Boudoir perfume bottles and glass objects made especially for children.
The popular Hot Shop presents professional artists demonstrating the remarkable process that goes into creating molten glass works of art. Learn the process, the history, and the science of glass making and see magnificent pieces created right before your eyes.
The architecture of the building is also a work of art along with outdoor plazas containing glass sculptures near or in the water, reflecting pools, an unusual 90-foot-tall dome, the amazing Chihuly Bridge of Glass, and the Water Forest of acrylic tubes that are filled with rising and falling water.
