The Seattle Art Museum Downtown is one museum in three locations: Seattle Art Museum Downtown, Seattle Asian Art Museum at Volunteer Park, and the Olympic Sculpture Park on the downtown waterfront.  In 1931, Dr. Richard E. Fuller inspired Seattle to create the Seattle Art Museum by his donation of funds and an impressive Chinese and Japanese art collection.

The Seattle Art Museum Downtown and Seattle Asian Art Museum are linked and encourage visitors to view both venues within one week for the price of one admission ticket.
