Seattle Art Museum

One Great Museum. Three Must-See Locations.

Visit the Seattle Art Museum (SAM) and experience a museum that is as much a part of Seattle’s landscape and personality as the rain, coffee, mountains, Pike Place Market, and the Space Needle. With three dynamic locations, each with unique reasons to visit, SAM has been the center for visual arts in the Pacific Northwest since 1933. Our collections, exhibitions, and programming feature must-see art from around the world in all mediums: paintings, photographs, sculptures, textiles, artifacts, video and more. There’s so much to love at SAM!

Seattle Art Museum – Downtown

One block from Pike Place Market, SAM’s collections include modern and contemporary, African, Meso-American, Ancient Mediterranean, Islamic, European, Oceanic, and Australian Aboriginal, American, and decorative arts. Visitors from out of town especially enjoy the remarkable Native American galleries featuring Northwest Coast art.

Olympic Sculpture Park

This award-winning nine-acre park on Seattle’s waterfront offers monumental contemporary sculptures, and breathtaking views of the Space Needle, Olympic Mountains, and Puget Sound just one mile north of the Seattle Art Museum.

Seattle Asian Art Museum – Volunteer Park

Located on the tranquil grounds of Volunteer Park, the newly renovated and expanded Seattle Asian Art Museum is an architectural gem complete with indoor water features, award-winning light fixtures, and floor to ceiling windows that bring nature inside. This stunning space is the ideal setting for a beautiful array of art from the world’s largest continent.
