My partner and I happened upon this store at Pike Place Market. They have anything and everything concerning maps, mostly of the Pacific Northwest, thankfully for us, since we are from the east coast, and this was our first trip to Seattle. Otherwise we might...More

For a history/geography nerd, this place was an exciting find. Fun to explore and reflect on the thousands of ways to represent the world visually (or any information, for that matter). Decided to pick up our Seattle-branded gifts here instead of a generic shop.

Was visiting Seattle for the first time. Just happened to stumble upon Metsker Maps. Thought it would be a quick in/out visit, but was pleasantly surprised by items sold here.

I popped in because it simply piqued my interest that such a store could survive in the digital internet age, and I quickly saw why. Quite simply, Metsker's is a commercial love letter to travel. They have beautiful maps of every vintage, antiquity, and value....More

Great store. It has all kinds of maps. Just be careful what size you buy. Because the frame will cost more than the map.

If you're in Seattle and looking for a place to find a paper map this would be a great place to start (and possibly end) your search. Very near Pike Place it is very easy to find. It's located directly on 1st Ave.
