Fun for a short visit. There were no guides to what we we looking at but some signs on the boats. We had a 5, 6, and 7 told with us. They said it was fun playing on the real boat.

Amazing museum and history to visit on a relaxing day. Great displays. They do need a few more seats to sit on when you want to rest. Great outdoor walk, too, along the pier, especially when personal mega boats are docked. I believe there are even restaurants you can walk to along the sidewalk.

I enjoyed the history of Tacoma, Seattle, and Puyallup nation. It was very educational to see how shipping and rail changed the PNW into the fast moving society it is today. Reading about and seeing the photos of the first passenger ferries to service the puget sound reminded me of how important the ferry system to our transportation network.
