Children's Museum of Tacoma

At the Children's Museum of Tacoma, our mission is to celebrate the power of play in the lifelong journey of learning.  Our vision is to be a leader in our community in using play to learn, to grow, and to thrive.

The Children's Museum of Tacoma was established in 1985 by parents, teachers, and community leaders dedicated to creating unique resources for families in Tacoma and the South Puget Sound Region. Due to excellence in education, programming, and hands-on exhibits, the Museum has earned a reputation as a cornerstone for early learning.
