The Tacoma Art Museum opened to the public in 2003 and is located next to Union Station. As a popular spot for a cultural experience, the Tacoma Art Museum offers various exhibitions, an art classroom, art studio and a resource center. It would be easy for you and your significant other to get lost in the extensive collection together.
Perhaps you both have an interest in live glassmaking. The Museum of Glass provides a truly unique experience for those who have never seen glassmaking.
