The Museum of Glass

One of Tacoma's features
is the Museum of Glass



It features exhibition space,
a gift shop and cafe,
underground parking,
a plaza on the waterside
that has a lovely reflecting pool,

and the big draw for visitors:
The Hot Shop
with an auditorium and glass furnace
(hint: it's the cone-shaped structure)

where you can watch artists-in-residence
create gorgeous works of art in glass.

Hey, Meri! This is an incredible place...I have not heard of it before, and would love to see it in person some time...maybe I can talk Lois into a trip up Tacoma way...

Have a great weekend!
