The Seattle Asian Art Museum is located in the old Seattle Art Museum building. It is located in Volunteer Park and inside a wonderful historical building. It has a great collection of Chinese and Japanese art as well as works from Korea, Southeast Asia, South Asia, and the Himalayas.

Along with art forms all over the world you will see a good variety of religious artifacts.

When you are visiting the museum make sure you get a good look at the Chinese terracotta funerary art, Chinese snuff bottles, and Japanese netsuke's (belt decorations).

There are also rooms devoted to Japanese and Chinese ceramics.

Don't forget the central hall, it contains stone-carved religious sculptures from South Asia.
