We saw it but cannot understand why this is allowed. Must be awful in the summer, its gross in winter.

Located down the ramp from Pike Market; this is a fun place to visit. It is near the theater and people waiting in line to see a show were told they couldn't chew gum in the theater. This started the tradition of the gum wall. Some very clever artistic things done with gum!

Something completely different, a wall full of gum. If you visitPike Market please stop at this wall, and leave you gum with a little message.

We read about this in our literature. This gum wall is in an alley. It's literally a wall loaded with chewed up gum. If you're in to this kind of thing, it could be seen as neat.

Its right next to Pike Place Market, so not really too far out of the normal tourist's path. Not exactly sure why its a "thing", but if gum covered alleys appeal to you this would be a must see.

This was kind of cool to see as I was walking by on my way to Ghost Alley. It is a quirky bit of Seattle culture.

The Gum wall is a fast and free little attraction located a flight of stairs or ramp down from Pikes. It's a neat place to check out as long as you do not have a germ phobia or get weirded out by a huge collection of DNA. I always appreciated checking out this place because Pikes gets busy and the...

Why not go to a pre-school and look at their "booger wall" ? People look at it but seriously, this is an attraction in Seattle?

If you're going to visit the Pike Place Market anyways, why not? Its literally around the corner from there. Go down the stairs from the Fish Market area and you'll see it. Its nothing crazy cool, but it's weird. There's gum stuck on the walls everywhere. It was recently cleaned a couple months ago. But dont worry, theres plenty more... More

It's a wall full of gum. Grab yourself a packet at the newsagents on the corner and add to the people's art exhibition: you're in the area having a coffee at the first Starbucks and seeing the fabulous crafts at Pike's Place market anyway, so why not?! A bit tricky to find, but Google gets you there, and it's close... More
