Located in the 1933 Art Moderne building that was originally home to the Seattle Art Museum, SAAM exhibits works from all Asian countries and cultures, with a special emphasis on Chinese and Japanese art.  The museum is located in the middle of the 48 acres of Volunteer Park, which makes a visit particularly nice in good weather. And in bad weather, a short stroll to the north gets you to the Volunteer Park Conservatory and its botanical garden.
