Outdoor Sculpture Plazas
Three large plazas adjacent to the Museum’s reflecting pools offer stunning views of artwork, the Thea Foss Waterway and the cityscape. Your guests can easily circulate from any of the plazas to the interior of the Museum to enjoy the galleries, Hot Shop, theater and Education Studio.
The Main Plaza: At the Water’s Edge
The Main Plaza is a 3,900 square-foot outdoor venue adjacent to the Museum’s entrance and the largest reflecting pool. With spectacular views of Martin Blank's Fluent Steps installation and the waterway, the Main Plaza is an ideal location for a large wedding for a couple who loves contemporary art.
The Mezzanine Plaza: Intimate Outdoors
The 4,200 square-foot Mezzanine Plaza overlooks the Thea Foss Waterway and esplanade. The Plaza is bordered by one of the Museum’s three reflecting pools.
The Rooftop Plaza: Above it All
The Rooftop Plaza offers an extraordinary panorama, encompassing Tacoma’s Museum District, the upper portion of the Museum’s cone, Mount Rainer and the Olympic Mountain Range. With 5,400 square-feet, the Rooftop Plaza is the largest of the Museum’s three outdoor sites and provides an excellent location for large-scale weddings with a view.
Availability: All plazas are available for weddings from 10 am to 11 pm daily
Note: All events held outdoors at the Museum are required to abide by the City of Tacoma’s noise ordinance laws, which require music and loud noise to cease by 11pm.
