  • Staff was super helpful! There are 2 levels and they even have a mock up of the Japanese Internment camp and how other Asians migrated into Seattle. I highly recommend going.
  • This Asian museum is beautiful. Our group also took a lovely outdoor tour with a great guide through the historical international district. Had a delicious dim sum meal at Jade Garden. A must see. Sad to see how many businesses have been closed or vandalized the past 2 yrs.
