Bellevue Arts Museum (BAM) reviews
You must experience the daily 1pm art docent tour! No additional cost and really expands the museum experience. The building is an exhibit in and of itself. Delightful way to spend an afternoon. Did..... more »
The building is a collection of odd rooms and spaces. The shows are often in just a couple rooms. My favorite was the display of Madeleine Albright's brooches she used for political statements. The... more »
Unusual and interesting art. Good variety that kept our interest. Close to great shopping and eating places. more »
it's not a very large museum, i'd actually call it a gallery. there are also numerous details like exposed power strips and outlets, various bits of discolored floor and ceiling tile, as well as a sort of unfinished feeling to the upper floor. but still, the exhibitions that were present when i visited were recent, which makes me think that there's a frequent rotation. the exhibitions were varied in format, medium, and context. i was pleased with the variety of artists in this space. the building itself encourages the patron to explore. there are sweeping curved stairways and broad rooms as well as small corridors to guide patrons. i felt the space was used very well. the curators were actively engaging patrons and were very knowledgeable about the exhibitions and the artists, i was very impressed with this as well as the overall demeanor of the curators. i get the impression that the exhibitions rotate frequently. if so, this is a unique offering to the area. i have only visited once so i can't really say, but if so, the museum offers something unique. i intend on visiting again, but i had a good birthday of it, and i can also vouch for several worthwhile bars and restaurants in the vicinity.
Was kinda pricey for the small exhibits. It was smaller than I expected. J was surprised you get in free if you have a bank of America card (but I don't support that bank so it didn't help us). Nice and friendly. They don't allow food or drinks (they made my mother in law dump her water). But overall a great experience.
Bellevue Arts Museum has been awesome and I have been a fan since it’s opening in 2001 at its current location. I still have the pamphlet from the opening day! I saw this demonstration by Piotr Szyhalski on Facebook recently and went seeing it. I like what Bellevue Arts Museum curates and collects. My family also went to the kids event during the Bellevue art fair. We had fun with high school robotic teams and activities local community organizations put out.
She had a good time and even enjoyed browsing the gift shop and first floor. Great location, nice friendly staff and volunteers.
I like that this museum has a hands-on exploration area for kids. Very engaging displays and super friendly curators.
