Washington State History Museum

Six museums in the Tacoma Museum District
Host Museum Professionals from Around the World

The Washington State History Museum was part of a collaborative fundraising event where all six museums* in downtown Tacoma each host guests from the American Association of Museums conference for entertainment, food, and museum tours.  The participants will be shuttled to our location and around to the different museums.  There was even a water taxi service taking visitors to the Foss Waterway Seaport Museum.

*Yes, downtown Tacoma features SIX museums:  the Washington State History Museum, Tacoma Art Museum, Children’s Museum of Tacoma, Museum of Glass, Foss Waterway Maritime Museum, and LeMay-America’s Car Museum.  Yeay Tacoma!

The History Museum’s new exhibit is called the “Time Intrusionator.”  It’s a fun, interactive, inquiry-based exhibit through time and history.  Hence, the Museum wanted someone fun and interactive to mingle with their guests.  Kim Ketcham, the Museum’s Communications & Marketing Director, thought of magic, and it was a perfect fit.

Strolling or roaming magic is ideal for situations where people are mingling, socializing, and enjoying appetizers and beverages

Museum professionals from around the country were here, as well as a few international delegates.  I was impressed to meet delegates from India and Taiwan, as well as a half dozen attendees from the “other” Washington, Washington D.C.

Amazement Productions’ Rick Anderson and Jeff Evans specialize in this close-up style of magic.  If your company or organization is looking for great entertainment in Tacoma or Seattle or beyond, call toll-free (877) 412-5064 or send email to jeff[at]amazementproductions.com.
