Seattle's Cultural Heritage

We invite you to experience the rich cultural heritage of Seattle. Explore Native American art and culture at Seattle Art Museum, the Burke Museum and the  Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center.  Learn about the significant Asian and Scandinavian contributions to this region by visiting the Wing Luke Asian Museum or the Nordic Heritage Museum. Discover Northwest African American culture at the Northwest African American Museum. The historic Pioneer Square district features the Underground Tour, a glimpse of Seattle as it was before the Great Fire in 1889. And no trip to Seattle is complete without visiting Pike Place Market, a nine acre historic district that is one of Seattle’s most famous landmarks and a beloved destination for residents and visitors alike.

Explore Seattle’s African American, Asian American, Latino/Hispanic, Native American and Nordic history and heritage in our series of free Cultural Guides to the city and region.
