Skagit Valley Tulip Festival Tour with Local Wine & Cheese from Seattle

12 reviews
See the Skagit Valley in full bloom on an excursion from Seattle to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival that includes tastings of local wine and cheese. Since the most picturesque tulip views are from back roads and farm fields, finding the colorful harvest during the fleeting season can be a challenge, but this guided, small-group tulip tour takes the guesswork out of visiting the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.

We came in to browse the museum gift store that was visible from the sidewalk, but as we approached the admissions table to the museum itself, a friendly dozen told us about the collection and how it was bequeathed to the museum from the private collection of Betty Black. Intrigued, we stepped inside and started out tour. We ended up spending nearly an hour in the museum, and paused at every piece of art (mostly paintings) and their descriptions. The displays did a good job of telling us the life story of Betty Black, born in Scotland, how she came to the United States, and why she started collecting paintings, mostly from local artists. She filled her house with artwork, and by the time she passed away her collection was an impressive group of original art that now fills the museum's walls and display space. There are a wide range of artistic styles and media on display, so there is sure to be something that will interest you. Just as interesting, I think, are the stories of Betty's life that are woven throughout the gallery and accompany the paintings, telling you the background on where she met the artists she collected. This was a great find on our trip to La Conner and should be on your must-do list of things in town.
