The artwork of Chihully shines and makes great contrast to the background of the gardens. I understand that this exhibition is temporary and will end soon so try to visit soon. There is a good amount of walking involved but is well worth it!

Dispite the TRAILWAYS bus driver getting lost in the Bronx the NYBG tour director adjusted our tram ride instead of canceling. It was a little rushed but so worth seeing the Chihuly glass sculpture exhibit. Wish it was available all summer and fall. The tour...More

I went for the Chihuly displays and realized there is so much more to this attraction. Easily a full day excursion coming from midtown Manhattan as I did, but well worth the adventure. The botanical displays alone were worth the price of admission, but having...More
