There are three main parts to the Seattle Art Museum, or SAM, the main museum in the city's downtown, the extensive Asian collection and – because some of their pieces are huge – a sculpture park. The art deco building that now houses the Asian exhibition was the original museum building.

Some of the highlights of the museum are 'The Judgment of Paris' by Lucas Cranach the Elder, Mark Tobey's 'Electric Night' and Richard Serra's 'Wake'.

The admission price is only 'suggested', so you can argue out of paying, but please pay if you can. If not come to the museum on the first Thursday of the month when it's free anyway.
