Sometimes you just need a quiet moment to catch your breath and clear your mind. This free (Well, suggested donation) private art museum has provided many a saving grace for students on a budget, the recently unemployed (Damn this recession!) or smitten kittens on a first date. Located on First Hill, the front rooms of this museum are covered floor-to-ceiling in salon style classic works while the airy rear of the building hosts modern works by visiting shows.Recommended for:

The only upside to this museum is- it's free. If I would've had to pay money for this I would've been pretty miffed. There's a free parking lot but seeing as how it's the only free parking lot in all of Seattle it's full all the time. They ask that you check your bags at the front- for what? Am I gonna take a painting off the wall and stuff it into my backpack? They don't allow photography of any of the pieces and the entire space is devoted to one artist's body of work. I'd like a little variety in my art museums. There aren't even benches from which to sit and admire the paintings, you just have to stand and look at them. It's a well-kept space at least, but like most things in Seattle, it's too pretentious.
