This museum covers a huge variety of AAPI topics and tells stories about the wide range of Asian immigrants who settled in Seattle. They do tours every hour to show parts of the building that not all visitors can see, so definitely take the time to do that. Overall, well worth 1-2 hours of time while in the International District!

Wing Luke's Game Day BBQ Tour was terrific! Our tour guide was terrific -- great stories, explanations and positive energy. The food -- Hong Kong Fried Chicken Wings from Hue Ky Mi Gia (a famous noodle house --new to us), Lao BBQ Pork and Papaya Salad at Song Phang Kong, Mixed Fruit Sago drink from Fruit Bliss Cafe, and Atlantic...

For $14.95, not many people would be able to appreciate this small museum. However, what I like about this museum is that it helps me to understand the struggles and difficulties Asian experienced in The States. The stereotypes, obstacles they went through and currently facing are clearly depicted in the museum. I spent a lovely morning here and it was... More

A lovely stop for locals or tourists who are interested in Asian American experiences. The exhibits change regularly so at any given time you may see something specifically about Khmer-Americans, Pacific Islander Tattoos, Korean-Americans and more. Bruce Lee fans will definitely want to check out the exhibit on his life. To me, the heart of the museum is in the... More

The staff were warm, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We took the tour of the historic buildings and found it very engaging. Afterwards, the three of us split up and each had a meaningful experience. I toured the community rooms and the main exhibition - the incorporation of multiple perspectives, first person voice and community involvement was really well done. My partner... More

There are tours every hour at this first-rate museum, and they are included in the price of admission. The docent guides visitors to the part of the museum which has been converted into a mercantile store back in the early 20th century. The atmosphere in the store really creates a sense of how it must have felt to be a... More

I found the Wing Luke Museum by accident and I'm glad I did! The First Year of the Bruce Lee exhibit was awesome and I'm excited to see years two and three! The diversity of stories told within the walls of the museum are breathtaking and fascinating. Definitely worth a visit for the whole family. A treat would be to... More

The "Wing" is a worthy stop while in Seattle. As a teacher of American history, I appreciate how the museum documents the lives of Asian and Pacific Island immigrants from the 1860s to the present. Even the building, a 1910 "hotel" that housed bachelor Chinese men - man of them "bachelors" because they could not bring their wives to the... More

Stopped there after getting Grandma from the airport, prior to a good dim sum lunch. Did not do the guided tour, which I regret. Very good exhibits about Asian immigrants, and the Bruce Lee exhibit. Would go back again.
