What a great stroll in down town Tacoma and it is free for all. Chihuly's work is beautiful. The walk changes with the sunlight and the rain.

Walking around trying to get a good view of “the Mountain” and wandered over the bridge. Beautiful glass above my head and locals enjoying the space. Classy option in Tacoma.

A very stunning and unique display of art in the heart of downtown Tacoma. Glass creations encased on the bridge overpass will keep you mesmerized with the beautiful Tacoma skyline for a backdrop.

The bridge itself isn't made of glass. It is a typical pedestrian bridge but one that has glass art installed on it.

Hi Maggie, yes there is ample parking space nearby. But we simply parked our RV at the curb on Dock street. But there are parking lots along Dock Street as well.

The bridge is always open. It’s an open walkway and bridge between the Washington State Historical Museum and the Glass Museum.
