This is a really nicely done museum recoding the history of the asian population in Seattle. The tour of the grocery and hotel is really good and a must do. A gem of a place.

This museum really shows you the development of the International District of Seattle. Take the neighborhood tour! We did. Our tour guide was James. So much history that we would never have learned on our own about the neighborhood.

Went to see the Bruce Lee exhibit. Wasn't disappointed. But walked away with so much more information. Took the whole tour including the family club room and the hotel. They are planning more ethic traveler rooms. Can't wait to see what's included.

I have wanted to go here since they moved into the present building. It is wonderful. You really need to take the guided tour, it is free with admission. You go to the controlled access areas, and this is the only way you will see them. Between a store that was moved and reconstructed, or the original hotel on the... More

We found this museum by accident after a trip for Yum Cha ( Dim Sum), arriving just as a tour was leaving. What an interesting tour, learning about Chinese and Japanese Americans, and their early lives and challenges in USA. I then booked on the Noodle Slurp - the museum runs food tours fortnightly changing the focus every quarter aimed... More

Just happened to snag a parking space in front and after dim sum, we went in to take a look. A tour was starting, so we quickly decided to join in. The guide waited for us to pay, and then did the intro spiel which was a little boring for someone who regularly visits Seattle. But then we toured the... More

We learned a lot about how Chinese culture was during early 1900 to war time in this area. It was very interesting to learn of the different families, tour a real store that operated for almost 100yrs. Our tour guide I think named June was very knowledgeable and even gave us tips on where to eat lunch in the neighborhood.

This is one of best museum I have ever been to. Now in its third location, the Wing Luke has existed since the 1960s. The depth and details of their ever changing exhibits is astounding. This is a museum that serves to preserve the every-day human stories of community around it. There is a strong emphasis on personal narrative, challenging... More
