Very well laid out museum with very important and informative exhibits. Staff wa incredibly friendly. In a great neighborhood with lots of cool places and great food.
A tour of the Museum helps broaden the visitor's perspective - Seattle is much more than the Pike Street Market and fish tossing. The Museum's commitment to portraying the Pan-Asian community and to challenging perspectives on "Chinatowns" comes through loud and clear. Interesting balance of modern gallery space and historic interiors. If you're going to explore the International District, check... More
We went today to the "Wing.". I enjoyed learning about the plight of Asian Americans in their quest to assimilate to the US. Some interesting exhibits... Some not so much (but isn't that the case at every museum?). They had a children's exhibit on sweets. They also gave them a paper with 12 animal tracks to spot in the museum.... More

The tour was great as were the exhibits, which deal with Asian-Americans both in the Pacific Northwest and also in general. I especially enjoyed seeing the diversity of Asian-American experiences. I had to rush through the exhibits before... More

The upstairs hallway filled with sounds and letters was beautiful. The other exhibit upstairs explaining history of immigration and what happened over the years was very interesting. You must take...

The museum is located in Seattle's Chinatown. I went to this museum around 2:00pm on a weekday and didn't have any problems finding street parking. The museum itself doesn't have a parking lot. The museum is small and covers the history of Wing Luke who was a Seattle city councilman in the 60s and has some other Asian exhibits. You... More
Guided tour by Victoria was a highlight. Interesting history of Asian immigrants in Seattle. Tales of racism experienced are thought provoking.
Seattle's history is indelibly linked to the various Asian populations that emigrated to the Pacific North West and the Wing Luke Museum highlights the contributions those communities have made. Take the guided tour, the guides are very knowledgeable.
