  • This museum as across the street from Nell Thorn, and we decided to visit after lunch. Their gift shop is spectacular. I could have stayed there for hours. I admit we did not actually go into the muse...  more »

  • This is a fantastic and very accessible art museum. Because of its small scale and its specific focus on Pacific Northwest Artists, the exhibitions are very accessible and you very the ability to be very close and 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 would be considered Pacific Northwest Art as a genre, that is not the focus of this museum. This is what I think makes the museum especially important as a cultural resource here in Washington state. It is because it spans all art genres in terms of medium, form, expression, or era, as long as the art is visual in its presentation (as opposed to performed, or written, or lived, etc.) and it is geographically connected to the Pacific Northwest, that makes this such an invaluable resource to those of us who live here.
  • Fabulous art museum. Free. Friendly. Nice gift shop. Wonderful exhibits rotating on a regular basis. Well done!
  • Very welcoming staff. Beautifully displayed art.
  • A hidden gem. Very nicely curated collection of NW art.
  • Well first of all I love museums, second of all I love free things. This being both earns it 4 stars, the fifth star is because it's actually pretty good.
