|About these ratings|
There's no better way to get a healthy dose of culture than to enjoy some fine art, especially when the art is outdoors and free to enjoy. So in other words, you should plan on visiting the Olympic Sculpture Park, a 9-acre section of the Seattle Art Museum that's filled with works by such sculptors as Alexander Calder, Claes Oldenburg and Roxy Paine. Once you've had your fill of art, turn your attention to the view, which stretches over Elliott Bay to the Olympic Mountains.
Visitors note a walk through the park is quite an enjoyable way to experience the art and ambiance Seattle offers. "Serene area with unique pieces. Beautiful views of the water," a content TripAdvisor user said of the park. The Olympic Sculpture Garden is also home to a shop and a cafe, and free guided tours are available.
The Olympic Sculpture Park sits a few blocks southwest of the Space Needle near the shores of Elliott Bay. Hours vary by season, but the park is open every day. Visit the Olympic Sculpture Park's website for more details on hours and tour schedules.
