It's a bunch of gum stuck to the wall. It's interesting, but I don't know that it's the good kind of interesting. The bad part is the smell. It's a sweet minty smell that is very strong and you know it's coming from chewed gum.

Was a must see on our list of oddities to see. It was also kinda gross, but as others have said pretty in it's on way. We didn't linger long, just to take some pics to say 'we were here'!

The Gum Wall is a quick stop and pretty disgusting if you begin to think about the millions of gums all over the alley walls. Nonetheless, it was a nice experience. Kids loved it and we all memorialized the moment by leaving a piece of...More

This is a must see in Seattle because it is just so gross. More of a gum street than a gum wall it is at the southern end of the market.

Yes, it's a bunch of chewed up gum stuck to a wall, but it's the only spot in the US that displays it in such an artsy way! This place was oddly the reason why I wanted to visit Seattle in the first place- to...More

It’s a must-do considering you’ll likely be within steps of the alley — but the experience is exactly as my title says.

If you are going to Pike Place Market then you might as well include this in your trip. Look for the signs that say "Post Aly" and it actually is in an alleyway. It's pretty gross to see all the gum but interesting enough to...More
