Get ready for major visual stimulation: The Chihuly Collection opens Sunday in downtown St. Petersburg, the only permanent, museum-quality collection in the world of Dale Chihuly's beloved glass sculptures.

Grand opening of the St. Petersburg Chihuly CollectionFor those itching to be among the first to see the collection, know that the premier tour Sunday will cost $125. The artist will not be present but you will receive a Chihuly-themed book or DVD, your choice.

For most, Monday will be the real opening day, when general admission prices kick in. One thing we can't say enough: Unlike other area museums, visitors must buy a ticket for a specific entry time. You likely will not be able to walk up, buy a ticket and walk right in.
