Just a fun place to see while you were a pikes market. Good photo op! Easy to find and people can leave there piece too. Another must see!

The gum wall was on our list of things to see while at Pike's Place Market. It is right downstairs. Even though people think it is gross, the area was very crowded and the tourists seemed to be enjoying the walls covered in chewed gum. Yes, we did put gum there.

This is difficult to review because a wall plastered with chewed gum is definitely not interesting to me and i actually find it pretty gross. It is close to the pike place market, right in Post Alley. The wall certainly is colorful and the gum is...artistically placed i guess. I don't think i will rate it a must see, but... More

Since we were in Pike's Place, stopped at the gum wall. Not something I would go out of my way to see. Gum everywhere and borderline gross. I guess you can call it a form of art, people from all over leaving their mark. Wasn't very impressed though my teenagers enjoyed seeing it.

This was worth stopping at, the kids thought it was neat. I was more interested in people watching, there were people looking for quite a while, which I thought was kinda strange as it was just old gum. If you are here, you have to do it.

Dont touch the walls! It is literally covered in GUM. Its a fun experience and you should check it out. Smells like fruit loops walking down the alley. Located next to Pike St Market.

Aside from the very drunk guy that came out of door screaming at the top of his lungs until he walked out of sight there was no one else in the alley but us, which was creepy but cool. I like weird stuff like this and it definitely peeked my interest. There was soo much chewed gum all over the... More

I had heard about this place from a friend before I came to Seattle, and was intrigued. I actually stumbled across it by accident as it's at the end of Pike Place Market. To be honest though, I don't really understand why it exists. It's kind of gross!

This was interesting! Quite gross, like the underside of your desk in 2nd grade. The kids thought it was pretty cool to bring gum to chew and stick up on the wall. I would suggest going one time, not sure if I would return, been there done that got the t-shirt!!!!!
