Fodor's Review

With its beautiful setting right along the Thea Foss waterfront, the turn-of-the-20th-century, wharf-style structure—which underwent a major renovation and the installation of a dashing new glass facade early in 2013—is easily reached along a walk by the bay. Inside the enormous timber building, displays trace the history of Tacoma's brisk shipping business. Extensive exhibits cover boat-making, importing and exporting, and the development of the waterfront. Photos

and relics round out the exhibits, and children's activities are staged monthly.
