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 outstanding museum! Well organized and located right downtown. They have an excellent collection of Native American Art relevant to the region. When I was there they had a spectacular visiting collection from India. Very well laid out and very educational.

  • Amazing venue of exhibits. I liked the variety, pieces from many different cultures and time frames. It took me a little over three hours to complete. That was with several exhibits closed too. I also liked the "you" pick the admission fee amount. The cafe was good too. A decent selection of food.

  • A beautiful collection of art, especially Pacific Northwest indigenous art, which is thoughtfully curated. The space is welcoming and the docents are friendly and well-informed, as well as enthusiastic about the art. The location is excellent, easily accessible by public transportation and easy walking distance from other attractions.

  • The Indian exhibition was simply exquisite with jewel encrusted weapons and jewellery! It was the cherry on top of a superb gallery housing a range of masterpieces from all parts of the globe. There is a nice flow to the collection and my personal favourite was the ancient artefacts with some daring to as far back as 2,500 BC

  • One of my favorite places to visit in Seattle. It’s a great place to get out of the rain for a bit and enjoy some art. It’s a small art museum (Seattle is a small big city) but the exhibits are always great.
