Children's Museum of Tacoma

Tacoma, WA

For the new Children’s Museum of Tacoma, which opened in 2012, BCRA’s design team worked closely with museum stakeholders for input on exploration and imagination. The prevailing theme was “ish;” spaces and exhibits that were real-ish, but open for interpretation by each visitor. The Museum’s uniqueness stems from those less-structured areas where whimsy and imagination come into play.

Messy exploration, art studios, passive learning, and quiet areas were all included in the design. Parents’ needs were incorporated with ample seating and stroller parking, while a café, prep areas, storage, classrooms, and administrative spaces met the museum’s programming needs.
