    Come with a fairly firm constitution, because this collaboration public work is kind of creepy.

  • Caroline D.

    The place is shady but if you go around 2 pm, the lighting is good enough for photos. Whatever you do, do NOT touch the wall.

    Caroline Deng · July 2
  • Micaela N.

    Add your own gum, but do so carefully.

    Gross yet artful. You have to be there to experience it! If you think you might be stepping on some gum....... you most likely are.

    Worth a photo. I've never added my own gum, though.

    Celeste Thayer · August 19, 2014
  • Alaa S.

    Another quick Seattle must-see attraction. You can smell the germs in the air though :D

    Enticing, and slightly gross.

  • Wyatt P.

    I need germ-x after that.

    If you come here to visit and take pictures, try your best to hunt for Kurt Cobain's contribution to the gum wall. I'll bet you can't find it.

    Jonathan Slater · January 29, 2014
  • Graham C.

    Place your piece of gum, take a picture, and move along. LOL

    Graham Castellano · January 21, 2014
  • Kaede B.

    The germaphobe in me shudders, however the Gum Wall is cool to look at, just no touchies! While you're down there, slip into the Alibi Room for a pint and pie(pizza pie), it's a semi-hidden gem.

    Kaede Balazs · November 14, 2013
  • Adam S.

    Save some money. Just pull some gum off the wall, chew it yourself and reapply like it's your own. Fun!! Try some red and green. Yummers!!! ;-)

    Who started it all..that's the question

    Tim Pooch · August 17, 2013
  • Mike P.

    Gum was once known as Chicle! Which came from the bark of trees that the native Americans used to just chew for no reason. Gum sure does have a sticky history!!!

    Mike Pantoliano · August 3, 2013
  • Miranda R.

    Try the strawberry pineapple swirl, it'll make your head spiral!

    Miranda Rensch · August 3, 2013
  • Trisha F.

    If you're at all squeamish, skip it. I thought I'd be fascinated but it was just disgusting.

    Trisha Fawver · August 2, 2013
  • Arnab M.

    Leve your gum and DNA

    Arnab Majumdar · July 23, 2013
  • Lane K.

    Didn't smell. Lies! Don't be a wimp, add a piece!

    This place smells vile. Holy hell.

    A sticky situation.

  • Jeph

    It's the second dirtiest attraction in the world - right after the blarney stone.

    Seattle's Gum Wall - an absolute, must visit, if you are showing tourists around!

    Robby Delaware · July 7, 2012
  • Sarah F.

    The best photo opps call for checking your soles before you get into your car... your shoes will be sticky with fallen soldiers from this monument.
