"Grown-up fun"

Not exactly a kid's dream day!  If you have typical little ones, I would say that this would not be their favorite Seattle destination.  If they happen to have a particular interest in Asian art then this might be a home run, but most kids are going to find this a little dry.  There are plenty of run around areas outside and a great sculpture and photo op area.  You might want to reserve this attraction for older kids or be prepared with a plan to entertain the little ones outside on a nice sunny day.  I believe that if you pay for admission to SAM that you have a day or so to use the ticket to get into the Asian Art museum, but please check that out for yourself as this policy may have changed.

"A nice museum with a good collection"

The Asian Art Museum sits on Seattle's Capitol Hill- just about 4 minutes from the downtown core.  The museum is located in Volunteer Park, itself a nice place to hang out with families.

My family is half Asian, so we enjoy visiting this museum and seeing great Asian art. The collection is fairly extensive, covering Asian art from a large number of countries and many styles.

This is probably not a good place for preschool aged kids, but it's a great place for older kids and adults, and my son liked it when he was a baby.  

Admission to this museum is only $7 for adults, which is great for a museum. Also, admission is free for families on the first Saturday of each month!
