The Harbor History Museum is a regional maritime and history museum in
Gig Harbor, Washington. It hosts exhibits on regional culture and

and moved to the museum's grounds in 2009.

Directions from North or South, take Wollochet/Center City Downtown exit, due to construction. From North left at top of ramp, cross over Rt16, left to pass Gas Station. From south, at top of ramp go straight past gas station. At water/Harborview Dr turn left, Museum is at the end of bay.

Third Wednesday, May 16: Tacoma Art Museum (TAM)

1701 Pacific Ave, Tacoma, WA 98402

Meet at 10 am just outside the main entrance.  Unless you want to do so, you don't have to pay to go through the Museum.  There is art to sketch without actually paying admission.  Also, some of us have guest passes to share.  

Parking info is here:

There is free parking at Freighthouse Square garage.  Then take the lightrail (tram)... it stops within walking distance of Tacoma Art Museum at Union Station.

For those who wish to venture further afoot there is the Union Station Court House - also free. It has a beautiful Victorian dome inside.

And as many of us know TAM is a great place to lunch after.
