What travelers say:

The Seattle Museum of Art is abbreviated as SAM. The museum was established on June 23, 1933, and was originally an Art Deco building located in the volunteer park Volunteer Park. A large collection of art and artifacts from the northwest Indian coast and African art can be seen at the Seattle Museum of Art. The exhibits cover works of art from medieval, Renaissance and Baroque Europe and America, including a room dedicated to collecting contemporary art from the North West. There is a free guide for the different collections. In front of the gallery, a worker with a hoe in hand worked night after night, the three-story steel-plastic is made by Jonathon Borofsky, symbolizing hard-working laborers.
