The Children's Museum of Tacoma's fiscal year is June 1 - May 31.
As we celebrate five years at our current location at 1501 Pacific Avenue, we continue to find inspiration in the community we serve. The Muse, Preschool Powered by Play and Play to Learn all see program expansion, and the Museum welcomes even more visitors than in years past.
The Museum continues to honor children and champion play in our community. The opening of The Muse: A Children's Center, partnership with a local school district for Play to Learn expansion, and the second annual Symposium on Our Youngest Citizens mark the 2015-2016 fiscal year.
When the current Children’s Museum of Tacoma opened its doors in the Tacoma Museum District, Pay As You Will admission captured national attention as a new operating model for children’s museums in their communities. It represented the elimination of financial barriers, and welcomed visitors into an inspired environment where children are honored and play is championed. Four years later, the Museum has welcomed over half a million visitors through its doors, and proudly still leads the way in accessible visitation and programming in the local museum community and children’s museum field nationally.
