Information on Metsker Maps of Seattle, Seattle Map Store

Skip at front counter
Metsker Maps is located on 1st Avenue, between Pike and Pine, in downtown Seattle. We are one of the largest (or perhaps the largest) map store in the U.S. Although we carry many local maps we have maps of all types, from all over the world.  
 We sell folded maps, hiking maps, wall maps, maps for kids, flags, nautical charts, globes, antique map reprints, books, maps gifts and many map things.   If it's related to maps/geography/travel/hiking//recreation, we've got it!
Metsker Maps has been a fixture in Seattle since 1950. 
Why "Metsker” Maps? Charles Metsker started making maps of the Pacific Northwest in 1901. In 1950 the first Seattle store opened in downtown (1020 Third Ave) by the Metsker family primarily to sell the county maps, township maps & the atlases they published. In 1980 the store moved to Pioneer Square (1st and Cherry) and was sold outside the Metsker family. After that we started selling many more types of maps along with anything related to maps and travel. In 1999 we joined forces with Kroll Map Company, a mapmaker located in Belltown that continues to publish maps. In 2004 we moved to our current location in the Pike Place Market.  We continue to be a locally owned business.
