It was ok but I had hoped to see more of Chihuly's works

It is a smaller museum than you think, but the theatre section was my favorite part. Make sure you allow enough time to watch whatever they are showing in the theatre!

The only part we enjoyed was the special exhibit of Bohemian Boudoir perfume bottles and the children's glass objects made from their drawings. The items in the gift shop are much more impressive than those on display in the Galleries.

Go often, the displays change regularly. The glass is beautiful.

Personally I think the glass display at the Bellagio in Las Vegas is better. I was very dissappointed on what was displayed.

Save lots of time for the Hot Studio, really it's the primary attraction. Also, I really enjoyed the pieces based off of children's drawing that are near the restrooms. As for the remainder of the museum, it's pretty pedestrian for the cost. It is worth it to see once, but besides the hot studio where they are actually making glass one visit in a lifetime is probably all you really need.

While it wasn't as amazing as I expected it was still worth the visit, especially with a Groupon deal! I really liked watching them work in the Hot Shop while someone talked us through what they were doing. That was neat!
