Visit Museum of Glass

Feel the heat as you watch a team of artists create masterpieces from molten glass in the West Coast's largest Hot Shop—housed inside the iconic 90-foot stainless steel cone—and marvel at edgy and inspiring exhibitions of glass in the galleries. With its striking architecture, majestic outdoor art installations, the remarkable Chihuly Bridge of Glass and the finest Museum Store around, Museum of Glass is Tacoma's cultural landmark. Visit »

Museum of Glass is pleased to offer the free use of Assistive Listening Headsets in the Hot Shop. If you find it difficult to understand the speaker in the Hot Shop, these headsets will greatly improve the clarity of the narrator. Simply ask to borrow a headset at the front desk for your use here at Museum of Glass. Please return the headset before you leave the Museum.
