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.

An amazing location. If you live in Seattle or are just visiting, this place is a must go no matter what. Every single part of all of the exhibits are well done and will make you think to enjoy it. And that makes me enjoy it even more.
First, the cost is fairly standard for art galleries/museums. It featured multiple exhibitions which kept my attention in check. That's a really good thing for me. The spacing is adequate, leaving room for the mind to refocus between halls. I was fortunate to have dropped in when the Yves Saint Laurent exhibition was released too. It was a pleasant addition to the stay. Be prepared to stay for at least two good hours at least if you love art. Most of the staff circulating around were friendly (the ones upstairs were not as friendly). The front desk clerk I encountered was very nice (I thought she was from another country but she said she was a local). The one negative thing I noticed was that a few loud guests were not asked to lower their voices. They weren't even talking about anything art related. It was just plain noise. Still, a good art museum to visit in town.
The Jacob Lawrence exhibit was amazing! It was historical! Phenomenal to see all 60 panels, a comprehensive pictorial history of the migration of African American people from the south, in one place. Then to amplify the experience through the brilliant interpretation of Step Afrika! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
One of the best places to visit while here. The collection I went to see was sold out by the time we went in -so i suggest buying tickets ahead of time so you don't have to wait until they open sales for them again and have to rush before closing time. I feel the set up throughout the exhibits is awesome and it lets visitors flow through at their pace. Definitely recommended.
We went on a free day (first Thursday of the month) and it was well staffed, amazing exhibits and a perfect amount without being to overbearing. Coat check, even with a crazy long line, was efficient and kind. Loved every second there.
