The Seattle Asian Art Museum is a museum of Asian art located inside Volunteer Park in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, Washington, United States. Part of the Seattle Art Museum, SAAM occupies the 1933 Art Moderne building which was originally home to the Seattle Art Museum's main collection. In 1991 the main collection moved to a newly constructed Seattle Art Museum building in downtown Seattle, at which time the Seattle Asian Art Museum was created. Admission is free on the first Thursday and the first Saturday of every month.

The building is a designated Seattle landmark.[1]
