Tacoma has truly transformed itself with the rapid emergence of a dramatic "Museum District" in the heart of  downtown. The Tacoma Art Museum, the Museum of Glass, and the Washington State History Museum linked within walking distance by the spectacular Chihuly Bridge of Glass and historic Union Station, which also filled with Chihuly art. The Children's Museum, the America's Car Museum, and the Maritime Museum complete the district. Today Tacoma is indeed a "Museum Mecca"" with so many cultural attractions within easy walking distance of each other. ~ The Travel Tacoma website
