Frye Art Museum

Frye Art Museum

Museums Capitol Hill

Located on Seattle’s First Hill, the Frye Art Museum first opened its doors in 1952 as the legacy of Charles and Emma Frye, prominent early-twentieth-century Seattle business leaders and art collectors. Admission to the museum is always free.

The collection includes nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century German and American paintings, as well as more contemporary works that bridge visual art, media, and installation. The Museum also hosts a wide variety of rotating exhibitions featuring local, national, and international artists.

All visitors are welcome to join a wide variety of programming and events, from free weekly tours to film screenings, concerts, artist lectures, and more. The newly opened MariPili at Café Frieda serves Galacian-inspired fare. The Museum Store features a curated collection of one-of-a-kind items from Pacific Northwest designers and artists.
