Puyallup Tribal Museum

In 1900, the Chief of the Puyallup Tribe gave his land to build a government school. In 1929, the boarding school became the Cushman Indian Hospital, located on the outskirts of present-day Tacoma. After a new hospital was built, the building became the Puyallup Tribal Museum.

The museum has a good selection of local Native art for sale, including baskets and cedar-plaited dresses. There are also baskets on display which are several hundred years old.
