Chose a beautiful, sunny day to walk through Seattle Art Museum Olympic Sculpture Park and admire the Olympics in the distance.

I love the iconic Eagle by Alexander Calder but there are a lot other great modern pieces.
Echo, the newly installed 45′ tall sculpture by Jaume Plensa, looks peacefully out over Puget Sound in the direction of Mount Olympus, just like you can.

Education Room at SAAM

The Seattle Asian Art Museum has a great kid’s room. There, children can learn how to make origami figures such as cranes. They also have the opportunity to learn about the symbol behind this by listening to the story of Sadako and the thousand cranes. There are a multitude of kids’ books about Japan, India, China, and other Asian countries. Children can also draw, color, and dress up in kimonos.
