  • A beautiful learning experience that will teach you about the experiences of immigrants from many East Asian countries. Definitely make sure to take the free tour. Our guide gave a moving speech at the end which renewed my appreciation for immigrant culture in the US and inspired reflections on my own family's immigration story. I took a star away because the special exhibits, like the Bruce Lee exhibit, are prohibitively expensive.
  • We been to Seattle so many times as my sister lives in Auburn. Never been in this museum. Really good experience. Learning about the hardship Chinese immigrants went through back in those day. The tour was great. Thank
  • Highly recommend the tour. Modestly-sized local culture museum with a lot of important Asian-American experiences. A good center to learn about the parts of Seattle in the international district that are on the verge of being consumed by the influx of workers and gentrification.
  • An unexpected surprise, and a wonderful opportunity to explore and learn about Bruce Lee, the Chinese community, and the greater Asian community in the Seattle area. Truly a gem of a place that was discovered entirely by chance when my party was going over brochures for things to do in the area. I must say this is truly a cultural experience. As a traveller you will become desperate for these cultural experiences as most of the Seattle area feels like a massive shopping centre. I’ll point out that the Wing Luke Museum features 2 different tours surrounding the Bruce Lee exhibits. One is a general admission tour, while the other is a more engaged 3 hour tour that includes a visit to one of Bruce Lee’s favourite restaurants in the area. You are asked to try and book your tickets in advance to allow the staff to coordinate the logistics. Upon arrival, the area is as old and worn as any Chinatown. If you chose the 3 hour tour, the area comes alive as the guide walks you through the neighbourhood where Bruce Lee lived, worked, and dreamed for the future. I must say that this was a highlight of the trip. I encourage you to walk the streets shared by Bruce Lee, his friends, and his family.
  • I had a great time with my family at the Wing Luke museum. It was very immersive and the tour of the nearby historic buildings was utterly fascinating. It brought to life the history and experiences of residents of Chinatown/ID. The museum has especially important lessons for us in light of our current political climate. I look forward to going back.
