    Off the track but really good art gallery. Mixture of First nation, modern and traditional art work. An excellent cafe at this location as well. If walking it is uphill from Pioneer Square and downtow...  more »

    As usual there are more exhibition spaces closed for setting up new shows than there are open and installed shows. It is a free gallery with a bistro that serves great food. Its better for the food than the exhibits. I am an advocate for making art available for everyone and applaud that motivation. Loved the chicken salad.

    One of my favorite museums in Seattle. Great collection of beautiful paintings. Very interesting, surprising, upbeat, rich, modern exhibitions in the past. Always enjoying every visit to the Fry. The Gallery Café serves wine, coffee,food. It also have Happy hours. The entry to the Museum is free.

    what a beautiful space for art. i appreciated the section displaying art work curated by past art directors at the Frye. The guided tour was also very informative and engaging. we had a great time.

    Gallery has a mix of wonderful painting and some others that you would have trouble selling at a yard sale. The video projection section had some of the worst 'art', here is a video of 50 pictures of an ugly house. The cost is nothing but your time so go check it out.

    The latest show of Ms.siegel? "art" is abysmal at best. Why would you dedicate a good portion of your museum to such mediocre work that I would never describe as art. Whoever decided this was a good idea should be fired.

Where to stay in Seattle

Famous for its architecture, Seattle's downtown area features a range of lodging options, including high-end hotels offering expensive rooms with views over Elliott Bay. Remember that despite their prices, many hotels in this waterfront district provide rather small rooms. If you need more space but don't want to break the bank, head out of downtown to some of the city's outlying neighborhoods. Seattle's diverse suburbs offer affordable bed and breakfasts, providing you with all the comforts of home and allowing you to see what local life is really like.
