Says...

Seattle's proximity to the Pacific Rim, combined with its substantial and longstanding Asian population, make the city an obvious home for a first-class repository of Asian art and artifacts. Primarily focusing on the work of artists from India, Japan, and Korea, the museum features an extensive array of pan-Asian art. Its collections encompass paintings, sculptures, and textiles, among other media, offering a broad cultural perspective on Asia's diverse traditions. Themes are both secular and religious, the latter highlighted by displays such as a meditating Buddha and Hindu deities, which illuminate the significance and reach of Asia's many religions. The museum store offers Asian merchandise and books.
