  • Very interesting artworks and special exhibits can be exciting. Easy to park, not so many people. Great place to visit on the weekend with family and friends. Free on Thursday afternoon!
  • They just keep getting better and better. Recently expanded, another new wing with sculptures. Museum Cafe is worth a stop, and the gift shop is small but has some unique high-end and low-end gifts. My favorite part is always the artists Workshop where we can make our own art! The watercolor piece I made I left on the big wall to share. Check out the awesome views of the city from the second floor. You'll need a minimum of 1 hour to see everything and that's at a good pace. Slow down and enjoy it and take 2 hours. A very quiet and peaceful place for young and old. This is a Tacoma gem for sure!
