play at the tacoma museum district's latest addition

The Tacoma Museum District welcomed its newest addition, the Children's Museum of Tacoma on Jan. 14. The museum offers a pay as you will admission that eliminates cost barriers and makes the 8,000-square feet of playspace accessible to all families.

Children's imaginations will run wild as they explore the five main areas of the museum: woods, water, voyager (imagination), invention and Becka's Art Studio. Children can immerse themselves in the interactive elements such as the 14-foot waterfall, the 15-foot tall climbing toy and various other props. Comfortable seats are scattered throughout the museum for parents to supervise and there is also a full-service cafe.

Located downtown near the Tacoma Art Museum, the Children's Museum more than doubled its playspace in its new location.

Children can explore Sunday through Wednesday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. For more information visit PlayTacoma.org.

What to do this weekend: 1/20 - 1/22

Happy Friday, Pierce County!
 
This time of year one of my favorite things to do is try something new and creative. The cloudy skies make being inside so appealing, but I don't want to just sit around indoors all weekend! Luckily, scattered throughout Pierce County there are plenty of creative enterprises who can help artistically challenged individuals like myself create something to display in my home, drink my morning coffee out of, or even give as a gift to a friend with an upcoming birthday!
