Beautiful to see if your in the area but don't go out of your way for it. It's a court house so the visit is quick.

The inside is just as spectacular as the outside. The structure of this dome building stands out when downtown Tacoma.

If you are in the area this is definitely worth a visit, several large works of Chuhuly are there. No charge, just show ID. Near the Museum of Glass and the Washington History Museum.

Beautiful old train station restored to all it's glory! Beautiful art glass exhibit but don't forget your picture ID or you won't be able to enter.

This former train depot has been turned into the prettiest courthouse I have ever seen. Not only is the architecture beautiful but inside are a handful of Chihuly sculptures. You are able to take photos, with restrictions.
