We’ve visited this museum several times and each time we’ve been surprised at the small size of the display galleries. The main attraction is the Hot Shop where visitors can watch the artists at work. During our visit they were busy turning children's drawings into three dimensional glass sculptures. Three to five hours is required to complete each one.
Don’t miss the exhibits outside, especially the Chihuly Bridge of Glass.
The museum is accessible. A couple of wheelchair spaces are located on the top tier of the Hot Shop galley seating. Visitors can also watch the action from walkways that circle the shop area. An elevator that must be unlocked by museum personnel accesses the Chihuly Bridge.
Limited on- street parking is available on Dock Street. We parked in a public lot on Dock Street about five block north of the museum. Museum
