  • A very interesting museum, you can be just a few feet away from amazing documents. Exhibits rotate, but I think the WW2 items may be constants.

  • An interesting collection of historical documents. Lots from Charles Darwin. Treaties/terms of agreement ending World War II and description of German/Russian spy are highlights. Free! Near Wright Park conservatory.
  • Lived in Tacoma my whole life and never knew of this museum. It has a rotating display of topics but if you like old historical documents this is a place you will find interesting. Fairly small and limited but what they do have is interesting to look at and appreciate a time prior to the digital age. Not recommended for children, lack of interest and preservation of the documents but history buffs should enjoy. Curator is a cool gentleman as well.
