  • This place is located in Tacoma. If you are visiting any part of Tacoma and then I suggest do visit this small little bonsai garden as well. It is free to view, beautiful displays of various Bonsai plants/trees. Also there is a nice gift and coffee shop too. Lot's of parking available.
  • Loved everything about this place. The trees were awesome to go and look at them. Spent maybe 40 minutes going through the whole thing
  • Very serene, well laid out, organized ... it was a very Zen experience. Beautiful!
  • We have visited the Bonsai Museum multiple times when we decided to have our wedding there. We were the first wedding the Bonsai Museum has had and they could not have been more helpful and accommodating. They let us borrow their chairs and everyone in the office helped us whenever we needed it. It was an unforgettable day.
  • Cute museum. free. Can walk through in 15 minutes or more than an hour depending on your level of interest
