We’re excited to let you know that many of the museums in Tacoma are reopening. These are great indoor places to take kids during the rainy season!
Unfortunately, the popular Children’s Museum of Tacoma is NOT yet open, but many of the other Tacoma area museums have lots for curious kids to enjoy.
As ever, I ask that you choose outings and experiences for your family. I’m not in charge of any of the rules and regulations, and I definitely want you to continue to choose what is right for your circumstances. Stay safe!
