Our favorite indoor attraction was the Art Glass Museum in Tacoma. We were there during grand opening time and really enjoyed the tour and the glass blowing demonstrations. Glass artists from around the world are invited to share their talents in the funnel shaped building with state of the art facilities. The building itself is a masterpiece and a striking piece of architecture.
This is the ceiling of the walkway that stretches across the highway and connects the museum to the old train station, now the courthouse. It contains hundreds of gorgeous glass bowls.

On either side of the walkway there are panels containing unbelievably beautiful glass creations.

This is just a small portion of them.

This masterpiece hangs from the ceiling of the courthouse.
