Celebrating 80 years, Tacoma Art Museum is an anchor in the city’s downtown and a gathering place for connecting people through art via thoughtful exhibitions, exciting events, and enriching programs.
The museum’s collection of more than 4,500 works emphasizes the art and artists of the Northwest and broader western region. Highlights of the collection include:
- the largest retrospective museum collection of glass art by Tacoma native Dale Chihuly on continued view;
- the largest collection of studio art jewelry by Northwest artists;
- key holdings in 19th century European and 20th century American art;
- one of the finest collections of Japanese woodblock prints on the West Coast; and
- the Haub Family Collection, one of the nation’s premier western American art collections, with approximately 300 works spanning 200 years. The Haub Family Collection is the first major museum collection of western American art in the Pacific Northwestern region.
TAM is located in Tacoma’s Museum District, near the Museum of Glass, the Washington State History Museum, Children’s Museum of Tacoma, and historic Union Station.
