We made a Couri-error!

The Courier team is sorry to report that we made a mistake in our January Destination Snapshot on Washington State. Page 88 misidentified the location of Tacoma’s Chihuly Bridge of Glass, stating that it is in Seattle. The bridge, a 500-foot-long pedestrian overpass, links the Museum of Glass to downtown Tacoma and its rapidly developing cultural corridor.

If somebody from Tacoma, Wash., extends the invitation to "come to the cone," they’re referring to The Museum of Glass: International Center for Contemporary Art, which has a signature 90-foot metallic cone. Devoted to the exhibition and interpretation of contemporary art, the $58 million museum opened last July and features 13,000 square feet of exhibition space, a glass-blowing "hot shop," and a technologically advanced resource center all housed within four stories of glass walls. Visitors are able to watch artists create glass pieces in the hot shop amphitheater and walk across the new Chihuly Bridge of Glass, which links the museum with the Washington State History Museum and downtown Tacoma.

To learn about the museum, call 866.468.7386 or go to Museum of Glass. For information on other Tacoma attractions, contact Tacoma Regional Convention & Visitor Bureau at 800.272.2662 or go to
