For more than six decades, the Seattle Art Museum has been a leading visual arts institution in the Pacific Northwest. When SAM opened its doors at Volunteer Park in 1933, the museum’s collection focused primarily on Asian art. Today, the Seattle Art Museum, has expanded into three venues and has matured into a world-class arts institution with a global perspective. The collection now numbers approximately 24,000 objects.

The Seattle Asian Art Museum in Volunteer Park opened as the original museum facility in 1933. In 1994, after a new museum building opened in downtown Seattle, this facility reopened as the museum’s center for Asian art and activities.

The Olympic Sculpture Park, which opened in early 2007, has transformed downtown Seattle’s largest undeveloped waterfront property from a former industrial site into open and vibrant green space for art.
