  • I had no idea all that went into glass blowing. The actual process is intriguing and resembles a perfectly choreographed dance of heat and passion. It's not only a beautiful museum, that houses these one of a kind pieces, but with exhibits where the artwork literally hangs from the rafters and pools into crevices in the floor, you see man's gems to be as equally beautiful as any oysters gems. It is truly a must see for three local and certainly for anyone visiting Western Washington State.
  • Even though we live in Seattle and not in Tacoma, we keep getting a membership to the Tacoma Art Museum because we love the permanent Western and glass collections as well as the varied visiting shows. This is a perfect weekend activity for us. We like to combine it with a visit to one of several fine coffee shops in the area.
  • I love that my little 2 year old can create art, we can all enjoy a burger at the restaurant, and then walk around the other art pieces. Thank you for the new American oil painting expansion!
  • Excellent facility and exhibits. Easy access with parking and public transit nearby. Staff very friendly and helpful.
  • This is a small Museum but the collections are always interesting and always so obviously curated with love. The staff is super welcoming. I love the free day once a month making this accessible for everyone in this community
