Group Visit Enhancements

Docent-led Gallery Tours

More worthwhile than a standard museum tour, our friendly docent-led tours will engage your group with an interactive experience of the artwork. Whether the members of your group have never set foot in a museum, or are seasoned art collectors, our docents will enlighten and challenge you to a richer understanding of the exhibitions.

Docent-led Plaza Tours

Interested in learning more about the architecture of Museum of Glass, the artwork on the plazas, and the Chihuly Bridge of Glass? Then add a docent-led Plaza Tour to you Group Visit! Our knowledgeable docents will lead your group around the building, plazas, and along the Chihuly Bridge of Glass while teaching you about architecture, Dale Chihuly, and much more. Please note that it is best to schedule Plaza Tours during fair weather seasons. Plaza tours are an additional $50 per group.

Hands-On Art

Let the youngest members of your group bring home their own work of art with our hands-on art projects in our Education Studio. All art projects relate to concepts and themes in our exhibitions. A docent or staff member will help to get you started on your project and will then leave you to let your creativity soar! This is a great way to make sure that your Group Visit to Museum of Glass will be remembered for years to come. Note that a $1 materials fee per participant applies.

You can also schedule your group tour to include a fusing workshop. Create your own suncatcher, tile, magnet or pendant in our Education Studio. Please schedule your fusing experience at the time of tour booking. Minimum of 6 participants required. Learn more about our fusing workshops here.

Edible Options

Choripan, the Museum's Cafe, offers a wonderful bistro-style menu and is more than happy to work with you to provide pre-ordered box lunches for your Group Visit. Learn More
