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 modern 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, vintage scuba and diving gear, importing and exporting, and the development of the waterfront. Photos and relics round out the exhibits, and children's activities are staged regularly.
