Museum of Glass reviews
They had a festival or something going on like Tacoma days or something. Tons of food trucks. Only thing is parking sucked so bad. They were completely packed. Very pretty stuff and fun karaoke going.... more »
Went here with my cousins as we heard so many things about it and thought it would be a nice way to spend the morning. Big mistake! We ended up spending the whole day here and none of us were sorry... more »
The Glass Museum is really unique in that they have a "hot shop" that you can sit and watch the artists blow glass. There is a docent that explains the equipment and process which makes for a really interesting experience. There are some nice pieces and the traveling exhibit changes so there is often something new to look at. It is smaller than I thought, however, still worth a visit. Bring your AAA card for a discount.
We went here yesterday and I would highly recommend this museum. It's native american focused and I found it to be very interesting and relaxing. Some of the wart work is amazing and worth seeing. I suggest going out and exploring around the museum as well they have hidden areas of glass to explore. I suggest walking to the bridge behind it and looking at the glass walls and ceilings.
