Outside the museum Mr Monkey looked at the boats in Thea Foss Waterway. This used to be part of Tacoma's industrial area, which is being regenerated. Crossing the bridge back to the drier bits of Tacoma, he heard some lonesome whistles blowing and looked over the side of the Bridge of Glass to see two very long freight trains pass each other.
You can read about the regeneration of the Thea Foss waterway at the Thea Foss Development Authority website.
