The University of Washington houses two of the state's premiere museums (The Henry Art Gallery and Burke Museum) and are free every first Thursday of every month. These are definitely worth checking out as there is something for everyone and since the exhibits change - you'll want to visit again!
The Henry Art Gallery was the first public art museum built in the state of Washington. Since that time, the gallery has gone through tremendous renovation and is now over 40,000 square feet, houses a 154-seat auditorium, a multimedia gallery and outdoor court. It is also conveniently located between the George Washington Statue and The Ave. The museum is free for UW students, faculty, and staff with ID; high school & college students with ID; children 13 years and under, and on every first Thursday of every month!
The Burke Museum is the state of Washington's first museum ever built and has a primary focus on natural history and culture heritage. It is conveniently located near the University's School of Law and the Foster School of Business (as shown on a map here). Admission is free to children 4 and under, and UW staff, faculty and students.
