Small museum with interesting exhibits. It's small enough to not feel overwhelmed. Good for an afternoon visit.
The Frye Art Museum is my favorite art museum in Seattle. It is always free year-round though I always contribute a few bucks to help support their expenses or purchase one of the many great art books from the giftshop as compensation.The Frye features a rotating display of breath-taking pre-Raphaelite art with portraits, landscapes and very large still life pieces. My favorite artist of the collection is William-Adolphe Bouguereau-his stunning portraits are the reason I visit the Frye again and again.The Frye also has rotating exhibits of modern art and unlike other modern art exhibits in the area I have always found the ones at the Frye to be the most inspirational and thought provoking.
