The Museum of Glass (MOG) is a museum dedicated to the medium of glass art located in Tacoma, Washington. It is not to be confused with the various other Museums of Glass, such as the one in Corning, New York, as the museum focuses on Contemporary and Pacific Northwest glass-art. Also not to be confused with Chihuly Garden and Glass in Seattle. The museum, the brainchild of Dr. Philip M. Phibbs, was designed by acclaimed Canadian architect Arthur Erickson and opened in July 2002. It is located on the Thea Foss Waterway and near the University of Washington Tacoma in downtown. The museum is linked to the downtown area via Bridge of Glass. The bridge consists of thousands of glass-art masterpieces created by Dale Chihuly to make up the Venetian Wall, Seaform Pavilion and Crystal Towers. The museum exhibits a conical hot shop building, which houses the glass blowing demonstrations. The room reaches 90 feet and has two furnaces reaching temperatures of 2,400 °F . There were also several other outdoor exhibits including the Water Forest (which was restored in summer 2009), reflecting pools and a waterfront promenade.
