This is so disgusting, but you have to do it. My two young kids thought this was the coolest thing ever. Make sure you buy your gum BEFORE coming here since they jack up the gum prices on site. The wall is "hidden" so if...More

This is kind if gross but a pretty cool spot to take a few pictures. If you go to Pikes Place market is just a few feet away.

It's gross yet strangely fascinating and weirdly mesmerizing to look at. It's a free attraction and makes for some interesting fun photo's. So why not just experience it while your there bring bubble gum and anti bacterial and you're good.

Easiest way to find it: check out the lower level shops under Pike's Market, walk outside the south end of those underground shops and walk left. If you can't find it, no biggie, it's just a wall with a bunch of gum stuck to it.

I certify that this is the place of a kind of both disgusting and interesting. Though it is not very big, everybody who visited Pike Place Market should visit Gum Wall too.

This takes no time to see and add your gum to the wall! I think it’s something fun to do and something that most people know about.

While this is admittedly gross, it’s also strangely beautiful. It doesn’t take long to stop by and see it and even add your gum to the wall if you want! The alley can be a bit crowded and hard to find. When you go into...More

I am into alternative art, but this is just wads of gum hanging on a wall! Really! Apparently someone sees this as worthy of looking at. It’s almost 1/2 block long and 5’ high. Go down the sidewalk to the alley from the beginning of...More

About 20 years ago, but the city of Seattle is taking it all down soon. I just saw it in the news last week.
