Did you know that Seattle's Frye Art Museum is the city's ONLY free art museum? That means there is no reason not to visit on your next family day out!
The Frye Art Museum is located in the First Hill neighborhood, and has been welcoming art loving families since all the way back in 1952!
Today, the Frye Art Museum prides itself on hosting various exhibits that showcase and reflect Seattle's evolving identity, and also showcasing local and global artists exploring the issues of our time AND exhibits that also explore contemporary viewpoints on historical subject matter.
The Frye Art Museum is a wonderful place for kids to be inspired, and feel creative as they discover exhibits that uncover new voices, facilitate conversation, and offer a forum for relevant social dialogues.
This Seattle favorite also offers a chance for kids to actively become imvolved too!
They offer a free program for children ages three to five years old (and their caregivers) presented in partnership with Seattle Children's Theatre meaning drama and art can be explored, and also build their confidence!
The museum also offer Community Days, where families and friends of all ages can participate and join various special museum-wide events. Here you can dive deeper into the museum's current exhibitions through gallery activities, as well as guided tours, hands-on art-making projects, and so much more!
