Museum of Glass, Tacoma, Washington (B)

Tacoma’s Museum of Glass might not be at the top of your must-see list. But it should be. Until I began seeing photos online of Chihuly’s glass sculptures, I hadn’t really thought much about glass as an art medium at all. When an opportunity arose to visit family in Seattle, I decided I would look into visiting the Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit at the Seattle Center. Every time I googled Chihuly’s name, I would also find references to a bridge of glass and other Chihuly exhibits at the Tacoma Museum of Glass. It didn’t take me long to realize that I had to see BOTH. While I’d love it if you checked out my visit to Chihuly Garden and Glass, this post is dedicated to all that I loved about the Museum of Glass (MOG) in Tacoma.

Tucked into an enclave amidst Tacoma’s courthouse & museums, railyard, trendy apartments, and marina you will find the Museum of Glass. It’s a beautiful setting for a museum of this type. With an iconic 90-ft cone, an expansive patio adorned with glass sculptures, and the bridge of glass, it also adds significantly to the area’s attractions. ......
