3. Museum of Glass
The museum of glass in Tacoma is dedicated to showcasing the best glass works from the 20th and 21st centuries.
There are both static and rotating galleries here that show themed exhibitions from around the region and you can either explore the museum at your leisure or you can enjoy a guided tour led by a friendly docent.
Guided tours will fill you in on the historical and culture importance of glass making as well as explain the significance behind some of the pieces on display here.
One of the signature features at the museum is also the live glass making workshops that are available where you can see artists working on pieces in front of your eyes.
