  • A nice and somewhat formal museum which is very respectful of the artists and exhibitions. Many special exhibits and a tremendous book/gift shop. I was a bit disappointed that there were not more established NW artists on display, but I'm sure that varies through the year.
  • This is a fantastic and very accessible art museum. Because of its small scale and its specific focus on Pacific Northwest Artists, the exhibits are very close in proximity affording one the ability to feel a connection to the art. The docent at the desk was very knowledgeable and willing to engage in conversations about the exhibitions showing currently and about art (and Pacific Northwest Art) more generally. Note that I did refer to artists of the Pacific Northwest, not to Pacific Northwest Art as a specific genre of art. Though there are elements and examples here of what could be considered examples from within such a genre, that is not the focus of this museum with its mission to "...connect people with the art, diverse cultures and environments of the Northwest." It is so obviously true to this mission as it spans all art genres in terms of medium, form, expression, or era, as long as the art is visual in its expression (as opposed to performed, or written, or lived, etc.) and it is geographically, or historically, or culturally connected to the Pacific Northwest in its creation. This is exactly what makes this such an invaluable resource to those of us who live here, and an absolute must on the route of those who are visiting our part of the world who would like to understand it better. This museum offers valuable and unique perspectives of the many cultures of the Pacific Northwest.
  • A very nice art museum with free admission, courteous staff, and a wonderful gift shop and bookstore. I would recommend this and La Conner in general for a great place to visit. Is located right amongst a bunch of different museums and wonderful gift shops.
  • Had the luncheon special. The clam chowder was very thick and pastey. Also lacking in clams and veggies. The turkey brioche sandwich was loaded with artichokes, while light on Turkey. Bread was rather limp and soggy. Disappointing visit.
  • Just dropped in as we were walking past. Beautiful art. Loved the otters.
