  • We hadn’t been to the Wing Luke in its new location and wow is it great. Usually I skip the formal tours but I highly recommend you take the tour (included in the price of admission) as it takes you.....  more »
  • Some interesting perspectives of America through the eyes of Asian Pacific people. One of the more interesting exhibits was the changes in women's looks over the decades from 1920 on.  more »

  • Very informative and worth visiting. Price includes guided tour. Learn a little about the history of Asians in Seattle. Guide was well informed. Be prepared to climb stairs for the best experience. It can get warm but normally nice and cool. Also place for kids to do craft.
  • I was SO glad I made time for this small community history museum. The Bruce Lee exhibit was fun, but the real highlight here is the tour that takes you next door to the old Chinese grocery store with artefacts from decades of neighborhood sales, and the tour of the SRO that housed Asian immigrants to the Seattle area from early 1900s to 1974. Tour guides are informative and genuine, with deep connections to the Seattle International District (formerly "Chinatown". Reserve 1.5 hrs and check tour schedules. Don't miss visiting the old hotel attached to the museum.
