about Wing Luke Asian Museum:
The Wing Luke Asian Museum is a good place to start when visiting the International District, although there's not a lot here to interest most kids below the gradeschool level.
The museum's centerpiece exhibition, One Song, Many Voices uses photographs, musical instruments, and clothing to explore the rich 200-year history of Asian Pacific immigrants. The visually arresting display includes Chinese lanterns suspended from the room's 16-foot high rafters, a 35-foot traditional Chinese dragon, and a 50-foot dragon boat. Other permanent exhibitions explore the history of the International District and the experiences of interned Japanese-Americans during World War II.
The museum offers a Free Family Day program on the third Saturday of each month.
First Thursdays and third Saturdays are always free and feature extended hours (10am-8pm).
Located at S King Street and Seventh Ave S in the International District just south of downtown. From I-5: Exit at Dearborn St. Turn right on Seventh Avenue. Parking: Metered parking is available on side streets and paid parking lots are available nearby. Public transportation: Served by Metro routes 1,7,14, and 36.
