“Excellent afternoon outing”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

My seat mate on the plane suggested the museum when I shared I was staying in Tacoma versus Seattle and I am soooo glad I followed up on his suggestion. Approaching the musuem itslef is a teaser for the treats inside. Watching the master glass blowers was eye opening and enlightening. Exhibits are exquisite and Ms. Karen my voluneteer docent was very knowledgable. It was a lovely afternoon outing and the view on the waterfront didn't hurt.

“Interesting”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Glass blowers are hard at work in front of the hot ovens. You can watch them blow and shape their glass from several places...bleacher-like seats or look down on them from above. It's fun to watch the artists create and work with glass. And, on a cold day, its a good place to warm up!

“Cool place”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

Live in the area, but until friends came from out of state we'd never been in here! We were ALL pleasantly surprised at how fun it was to sit in "comfy" seat and watch the glass blowing process. I want to bring my grandkids for the "one on one" deal they have where we can blow our own with supervision of course.

“You too can be a glassblower!”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

Such fun to make your own glass design and take it at home to enjoy! This is a fabulous place to gather after your a birthday lunch in one of the great restaurants closeby in historic downtown Tacoma! I loved it.
