You Spoke and We Listened

Last year, attendees said they wanted more structured social time to meet other community leaders, discuss common problems, and collaborate on solutions. In response, the CROCC planning team has built in almost two full hours of workshop-free time to enjoy Tacoma, visit a museum, and meet your peers. With quick field trips to three nearby museums and available TA providers standing by at the Convention Center, there are plenty of options for choosing how to enjoy the afternoon!

American Car Museum

The ACM Collection consists of automotive artifacts and 250 automobiles spanning over 100 years of automotive history, plus approximately another 100 vehicles on exhibit loan from private collections. Unique to ACM is our open storage galleries for collection vehicles not on active display, giving our visitors the opportunity to see the majority of our collection. Our collection celebrates America’s love affair with the automobile and includes both domestic and foreign marques.

Washington State History Museum

The Washington State History Museum is where fascination and FUN come together! People of all ages can explore and be entertained in an environment where characters from Washington's past speak about their lives. Through interactive exhibits, theatrical storytelling, high-tech displays and dramatic artifacts, learn about our state's unique people and places, as well as their impact on the country and the world.

Tacoma Art Museum

Tacoma Art Museum (TAM) is an anchor in the city’s downtown area and a gathering place for connecting people through art via thoughtful exhibitions, exciting events, and enriching programs. The museum’s collection of more than 4,500 works emphasizes the art and artists of the Northwest and broader western region.
