Bellevue Arts Museum

This museum was built in 1983, but its roots can be traced all the way back to the 1940s street fair. This architecturally elaborate building helped to transform downtown Bellevue into the sophisticated area that it is today. Unlike most art and history museums, the Bellevue Arts Museum does not have its own consistent set of pieces that they display to the public. Instead, they host many different art classes, tours, films, and programs to offer art-related education to their visitors.
