The Seattle Art Museum (SAM) is an art museum that has three primary facilities. Its main museum is in downtown Seattle, the Seattle Asian Art Museum (SAAM) is located in Volunteer Park, and the Olympic Sculpture Park is located at the central Seattle waterfront.

The museum’s collection has grown to over 25,000 pieces and it traces its origins to the Seattle Fine Arts Society (1905) and the Washington Arts Association (1906), which merged in 1917.

In 1991, SAM reopened its new downtown facility, and in 1994, the Volunteer Park facility became the Seattle Asian Art Museum. In 2007, the Olympic Sculpture Park opened to the public.

The museum’s collections of modern and ethnic art are notable as are its early Italian paintings by Dalmasio Scannabecchi, Puccio di Simone, Giovanni di Paolo, Bartolomeo Vivarini, and Paolo Uccello.

Other more recent European paintings include works by Jan Molenaer, Luca Giordano, Luca Carlevaris, Armand Guillaumin, and Camille Pissarro.

This museum also has an extensive collection of Twentieth-century American paintings and a considerable collection of Aboriginal Australian art.
