When the city sleeps, the ghosts come out to play. Interact with these other worldly spirits by signing up for a tour with Spooked In Seattle. Since 2004, Ross Allison, the founder of this tour service, has been enlightening visitors with the knowledge of how paranormal investigators and ghost hunters function. The tours are led by official paranormal investigators who will take you to real haunted sites while narrating true incidents. Visitors even get a glimpse of sites shown on SyFy Ghost Hunters & Ghost Adventures. Guests can visit the haunted USS Turner Joy, crime scenes that writer Neil Low's has mentioned in his novels, haunted pubs and more.
The Seattle Art Museum is internationally recognized for its excellent collection of Asian, African and Native American art and for its fine collection of modern art produced by Pacific Northwest artists. The permanent collection includes 21,000 pieces and while it doesn't have huge collections of European art, it does have plentiful local art and wonderful visiting exhibits. The museum is centrally located downtown near the waterfront and Pike Place Market.
Charles and Emma Frye arrived in Seattle in 1888. Throughout a 25-year period, they amassed an unrivaled collection (eventually more than 230 pieces) of fine art painted by both American and European artists, mostly from the 19th and 20th Centuries. A trust in Charles Frye's will made provisions for a free public art museum, and today anyone can view the collection at no charge. Located on First Hill, the Frye Art Museum also includes the Gallery Cafe. Free parking is also available across from the main entrance.
