We took the street car from our hotel to City Park and it is a quick walk to the museum. Before going in we ventured through the sculpture garden, botanical garden and story land. The park itself is so clean and amazing. What a wonderful spot in the city.
We have a patron pass at the Seattle Art Museum which is supposed to get us into several others but it didn't work here. Not their fault, we had forgot to put on the special stickers to our museum cards. We also checked all our bags and things in at bag check which was convenient since we had done some shopping at the garden gift shop.
We were hungry so we first headed to the cafe in the museum. The food was delicious. People were also coming in from the park to get box lunches for picnics. Couldn't have been better.
We spent about two hours in the museum after a full day in the park. We made our way through all three floors and especially enjoyed the special exhibit. If you are planning and want to make your way around the park and to the museum plan on most of the day (5-6 hours).
Great gift shop at the sculpture garden, didn't see anything we could live without at the art museum gift shop.
