Fodor's Review

With its beautiful setting right along the Thea Foss waterfront, the turn-of-the-20th-century, wharf-style structure—with a dashing new glass facade—is easily reached along a walk by the bay. Inside the enormous timber building, a museum devoted to the city's waterfront heritage contains displays about 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 regularly.
