Sold out! Seattle Asian Art Museum reopens to high demand for limited tickets

Capitol Hill’s Volunteer Park remained a center of life through the pandemic but the energy level has increased starting with Friday’s reopening to the general public of the Seattle Asian Art Museum. But demand to see the overhauled museum and a limited schedule means you’ll need to wait a bit longer if you didn’t already make plans for reserving tickets when CHS reported on the planned reopening.

Currently, online reservations are booked up through June with the first openings coming in the last weekend of the month. SAAM remains at limited capacity, open Fridays through Sundays, 10 am–5 pm. Timed tickets will be sold online only, and future dates will be released on a rolling basis every Thursday.

The June 30th deadline for fully reopening the state and lifting COVID-19 restrictions on capacities will also hopefully bring more opportunities to visit.

Most people have never seen the overhauled and expanded Seattle Asian Art Museum in person. The Volunteer Park museum shuttered in mid-March 2020 as COVID-19 numbers climbed. Only weeks earlier that February, the building had reopened after three years of closure and construction to overhaul and expand the museum.

CHS reported earlier on the museum’s reopening plans here.
