The Children's Museum of Tacoma is a unique community resource that celebrates the power of play in the lifelong journey of learning. At the Children's Museum of Tacoma we want to ensure that every child and family can come play, so we offer Pay As You Will admission. Eliminating cost barriers means the Museum has a greater capacity to reach more families, engage more children in playful learning and support more parents.

Right to Play GALA is the Children’s Museum of Tacoma’s largest fundraiser. This is an exclusive opportunity where friends and benefactors of the Children’s Museum of Tacoma s will enjoy special tasting experiences, entertainment, games, and an auction: all benefiting the new Children's Museum of Tacoma
