COVID-19 Update

The PACCAR Pavilion at the Olympic Sculpture Park is currently closed to the public for fall/winter. Please note that no groups or gatherings are currently allowed in the park. Public events continue to be offered virtually. We strongly encourage park visitors to wear masks while visiting if they are unable to maintain a six foot distance from others.

Covered in monumental artworks, this award-winning nine-acre sculpture park on the waterfront is Seattle's largest downtown green space and is just one mile north of the Seattle Art Museum.

Seattle Art Museum acknowledges we are on the traditional homelands of the Duwamish, and the customary territories of the Suquamish and Muckleshoot Peoples. As a cultural and educational institution, we honor our ongoing connection to these communities past, present and future. We also acknowledge the many urban Native Peoples from many Nations who call Seattle their home.
