I've visited the Garden several times over many summers. I'm always impressed at how they continuously manage to have flowers blooming throughout the summer. The Glass work which they have intermingled through the garden displays adds an extra special touch of color to a beautiful...More

Fantastic afternoon! Arrived early and wandered around the beautiful gardens. Flowers everywhere! Greenhouses with vegetables we had not seen growing before. But the highlight was listening to our glassblowing expert's stories and instructions and participating in the glassblowing ourselves! It was fantastic! I had always...More

What a treat for our entire family to visit the Jewell Gardens and Glassblowing just outside Skagway. The beautifully manicured gardens were as pretty as those at Butchart Gardens in Victoria, but much smaller. They were well organized and widely diverse. The kids enjoyed the...More

Sign up for the glass blowing. You get to make a piece of art out of glass, they explain how it is done and what you can do, just a load of fun

If you're not looking, you might miss this very enjoyable Skagway attraction. I finished up a day of visiting the local Skagway area with lunch here and a quick tour around the garden. Food was prepared with ingredients from the natural, organic garden. It was...More

We took a Royal Caribbean cruise to Skagway and I SO wanted to go do the glassblowing excursion. Others in our party weren't interested because their experiences were just watching glassblowing. This was unlike ANYTHING I've ever done. EVERY single person in our party of...More

Yes, we were on a cruise and the bus took us to the gardens right from the port. I think the quality of the garden tours would vary, based on the status of the what is blooming/in season, but it is a beautiful and... More
