Come Play With Us

Play, Create, and Learn at Your Museum

Visit us in Tacoma and on Joint Base Lewis-McChord

The Children’s Museum of Tacoma features five nature-inspired playscapes, an art studio with supplies, a little library full of children’s books, and much more. The Museum is designed to encourage playful experiences for children ages birth to 12. Every visit is Pay As You Will, a donation-only admission model that ensures access to play for all families.

In partnership with Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM), the first ever children’s museum on a military installation will open April 24, 2021.  This new location will continue to build upon relationships established through the Play to Learn programming on JBLM, and will be designed to serve children and their families, with an emphasis on early learners, those experiencing special needs, and reintegration of our military into family life.
