Tacoma Art Museum (TAM) is an anchor in the city’s downtown and a gathering space for connecting people through art. TAM serves the diverse communities of the Northwest through its collection, exhibitions, and learning programs, emphasizing art and artists from the Northwest and broader western region.
TAM’s collection contains over 5,000 works, including the largest retrospective museum collection of glass art by Tacoma native Dale Chihuly, the most significant museum collection of jewelry by Northwest artists, key holdings in 19th century European and 20th century American art, and one of the finest collections of Japanese woodblock prints on the West Coast.
In 2014, TAM welcomed a gift of 295 works of western American art in the Haub Family Collection, one of the premier collections in the nation and the first major western American art museum collection in the Northwest. The Haub gift included funding for new galleries; the Haub Family Galleries opened in 2014.
In January 2016, TAM announced the gift of the Rebecca and Jack Benaroya Collection, including 225 works of art. The gift also includes funding for the Benaroya wing.
TAM welcomes you to come explore the galleries and relax in our serene light-filled architecture—your perfect destination for shopping, art-making, dining, and inspiration.
