Museum of Glass

Museum of Glass is located on the Thea Foss Waterway in downtown Tacoma. With 6,900 square feet, the impressive Grand Hall is an elegant space for weddings and receptions. The space has sophisticated lighting controls, superb acoustics, and a treated concrete floor, making it convenient for dancing and musical entertainment. Wedding guests will also have direct access to the museum’s galleries and outdoor art installations. The Grand Hall has capacity for up to 300 seated at rounds, or 400 for a Tacoma wedding reception. 

A very distinctive feature of the museum is the Hot Shop amphitheater, a working glass studio inside the building’s cone. If you choose to include this space, your guests can watch artists create works from molten glass. This space is a fantastic complement to the Grand Hall and is often used for wedding receptions prior to a seated dinner. The Hot Shop has capacity for 210 guests.

Three large plazas offer stunning views of the waterway, the cityscape, and Mount Rainier. Guests can easily circulate from plazas to the interior of the museum. These outdoor spaces and the neighboring Bridge of Glass offer amazing backdrops for wedding portraits.

If you are looking to create a truly memorable experience for your wedding, the Museum of Glass is the ideal destination!
