Seattle is home to a multitude of museums that boast amazing collections. The Henry Art Gallery, The Frye and SAM are just a few to note. Museum going is not a typical “spring-time activity,” as the warm sun is more alluring than the pristine museum interior. But for a week, our Seattle museums take center stage with the American Association of Museums coming to town for their annual conference. “Museum Week Northwest” includes two for one priced admission, specifically designed tours, and special events at multiple museums in the Seattle, Tacoma, and Olympia region. This week acts as a celebration of the cultural and museum work being done in our city. Be sure to come out and support the arts community.

Visit the link below to find various events occurring in our region from May 19 to May 23. I’m personally very excited about “Fantastic Felt Sushi” at the Bellevue Arts Museum on May 17, as well as the “Tour of Totems.”http://museumweeknw.com/Events.aspx
