    Peacefully reflect on works by German and American masters at this downtown gem. Admission is always free and art is displayed in natural light only. Bonus: parking is also free. Read more

    Frye showcases mainly German painting and sculpture from the 19th century to the present. See breathtaking pastoral landscapes from Fritz Baer and Francois Cachoud, or attend one of the many lectures.

    Free admission. Free parking. Free wi-fi. Yummy cafe. I think this will be my new "office" when I'm between clients in the Capitol Hill/downtown/First Hill area. Makes me happy.

    Frye Art Museum is always free of charged, was opened as a museum by founders who had that goal in mind. Always worth a visit, I try to visit a couple times a year.

    Go to the Frye and count how many paintings are on the walls. If you exceed 125, go have a glass of wine at the Cafe.
