Website

For decades, the Frye, founded in the early 20th century by a Seattle meatpacking family, was a sleepy place full of gilt frames and orthopedic shoes. In recent years it's become often the most exciting contemporary art museum in Seattle. Admission AND parking are always free; it's a miracle.
Hours: Tues, Wed, Fri-Sun 11 am-5 pm, Thurs 11 am-7 pm
