  • WOW! What a stunning collection, and a very diverse one at that! I've now been to all three SAM campuses and I'm absolutely smitten. There's something for everyone. I spent two hours here but I could have easily stayed for another hour. Highly recommended.
  • Seattle Art Museum is always worth a visit. Exhibit Our Blue Planet is one of best they have done, and that is saying something! Be sure to take enough time to listen to the video presentations. They are very well done. Also near the Blue Planet exhibition is on on empathy. The entire presentation, especially the video, on that is also superb.
