About Seattle Art Museum, Seattle
The Seattle Art Museum has three branches. This is the main museum. The other two are the Seattle Asian Art Museum and the Olympic Sculpture Park.
This 29000 square metre exhibition space has over 25000 in its collection. Unusually for an exhibit if this size, it does not host much traditional European art, though there is a scattering of paintings by Italian artists. Most of its collection focuses on ethnic art, modern art and 20th century paintings. A notable collection is a spectacular one of Aboriginal Australian Art. Others include Ancient American, Ancient Mediterranean, Islamic, Native American, Oceanic, and Pacific Northwest.
To shore up its exhibitions of traditional art, the museum invites highly rated travelling exhibitions, some of which draw record numbers of visitors.
One of the most magnificent and notable pieces is actually just outside the museum, a 3.5 metre kinetic sculpture called the Hammering Man by Jonathan Borofsky, which celebrates the common worker. It's arm moves up and down four times a minute.
Nearly a million people visit every year.

Medium size: 2 floors fully packed of above average art work. That room-of-plates is as great as you see in pic. Another important thing is parking: week days the museum building garage is not free(cannot be validated neither). I paid 22. But the staff said another garage can be validated so call them to find the direction. Store is also good. I’m sure you can find something interesting there. Friendly and fun staff.
The facility was clean and the staff were very friendly. We went on a Thursday when general admission is free. The exhibits are laid out a bit sporadically and did not feel that easy to navigate. Perhaps, that was intentional, but I feel it would have been a bit easier if they had indicated a general flow of traffic. The content of the exhibits was interesting -- even if you are a general consumer of art. They had limited representation of art globally, but it was interesting to see the Native American art, as well as art from indigenous peoples of other countries.
We went on free museum day. Was our first time. Parking is q bit hard to find, but the place it's self was amazing. Took my 11 year son and he loved it. It's also just a block away from Pike Place. Great day trip
Lines are not organized and it's confusing to know which doors to enter if your not familiar with the area. I stool in line for over an hour without someone telling me I was in the wrong line. By the time I get to the door, there's a SMALL little sign indicating members only. The staff was friendly enough to try to resolve the problem and they apologize. However, by the time I got to the window, the manager did not apologized and firmly said I can't purchase because I wouldn't stand a chance to get a ticket. I left with total disappointment with this process. I'll support art, but not through this museum. Find a solution to this mess. Tickets are limited and plan 2-3 hours ahead of time.
This place was great. It offers art in a range of mediums from ancient, to modern, to abstract.. from all eras and continents and tied together really well.. I appreciated the presence of this gallery greatly during my trip and feel like it is a necessary part of this city. My favorite thing i saw.
