i don't usually use all caps and exclamation points in my reviews but this one deserves it. we had an hour to kill in Tacoma before we headed back home to Seattle to kick out our house sitter. Well, after three hours, we realized that we needed to actually move along. We're long time residents of Washington state (ok, forever... 更多
My daughter and I took advantage of free the third Thursday program at the Tacoma museums and so glad we did! Just a heads up, most museums only offer the free portion during the 5p -8p time frame, but this one starts at 2p and runs too 8p. Wish we world have known that, as there's lots to see and... 更多

Plenty of pay parking. The interior of the building is architecturally stunning! Tons of exhibits regarding Washington history. Handicap accessible, clean bathrooms! Small gift shop available. Staff are very friendly. This was an eye opener for us! Plan a few hours to visit.
We've been to this museum twice now, and both times the displays have been first class and informative. They rotate what is displayed from time to time so there is always new things to see and learn.
We brought 8 small children here on a weekday and it was incredible!! You really need a few hours to soak it all in. Many exhibits to enjoy. It really provides you with a great taste of the area's history, including some natural history. Some stuff for children to do hands on. You really should visit even if you already... 更多
The wife and I were there this past spring for our first visit there. They really have done a nice job with new building and all of the exhibits. Take your time and enjoy !!
