Even if you don't love glass art, you will appreciate this museum. From the hot room where you can watch people blow glass to the wonder childrens art glass exhibit to the traveling exhibits, you will be amazed at how a grain of sand can...More
We drove up to Tacoma from Portland to see this Museum of Glass after our brother had visited and gave us a positive review of it. The approach to the museum gives one a clue as to what will be seen inside as there are...More
The entire museum was impressive, but I had a particularly good time watching the current glass artist work on their projects live with a commentator for the audience. I learned a lot and came away with a greater appreciation for the craft.

Yes it is a kid friendly musuem. There was a room behind the entrance were a craft project of making paper hats was being worked on with families. The hot shop gallery is perfect for viewing. The displays are spaced far apart so you don't have to worry about bumping into them. However-no running.
