Tacoma's small children's museum is great. It is just the right size to spend an hour or three and just let the kids run. There is a place for tinkering and art, a water play some, and a few large interactive play places. I really enjoy how clean it is and how nice the staff is. We go often and always enjoy sitting in a window seat watching the kids play.
The museum is great. Lots of great areas to play for kids and a perfect place to go on a rainy day. Many different activities including an amazing water section inside. We stayed for 2 hours and didn't get bored The only negatives are it can be hard to park outside and it can get very crowded. Definitely the best place to take young kids on a rainy day in Tacoma
