Experience contemporary glass at Tacoma's cultural and architectural icon. Feel the heat as you watch artists working in the West Coast's largest hot shop- housed inside the 90-foot stainless steel cone- and marvel at edgy and inspiring exhibitions of 20th and 21st century glass. Create your own glass art, grab lunch or a sweet treat in the museum cafe, and take home a treasure from the finest museum store around. Outdoors, stroll across the remarkable Chihuly Bridge of Glass.
Please be advised, the Museum will close at 3pm on Sat. March 25, in preparation for our 6th Annual Slider Cook-off.
