Was quite surprised to see how small this museum was. Spent most of time watching the artist in residence as viewing the art work only took 20-30 minutes.

This is absolutely a MUST SEE! Amazing works of art ! The "Bridge" alone is stunning!! I wish I had a million dollars, I would go crazy in their gift shop!! Amazing talent showcased, and some one of a kind pieces you will never see anywhere else! Make a point of going here!

If there was just the hot glass working area, this would be worth the trip. The galleries (changing) were almost just a bonus. The facility has resident glassblowers, as well as visiting artists, so the work is always changing. Unlike other hot shops I've visited, this one focused on high-end art rather than commercial/production pieces. And the commentary and video production brings interpretation to the work being done.

If you are interested at all in crafts and glassblowing in particular, this is a must see.

If you have no interest at all in the above but love beautiful colors and shapes this is still a great see.

The artists change from time to time but the collection of glass works here is so amazing. The gallery is loaded with so many wonderful peices. And there was a very knowledgable guide who told us about many of the pieces and how they were made.
In the Hot Shop they are actually blowing glass and creating new things and that is very interesting and informative. Located on the waterfront makes the location very nice for lunch a stroll. A great way to spend the afternoon in Tacoma.
