On the grounds of the Locks are the Carl S. English Jr. Botanical Gardens. When the Locks were being constructed, the Corps of Engineers hired botanist Carl English to transform the gravel dug up from the Locks' construction into an English style botanical garden. For 43 years, Mr. English labored on the seven acres of the Gardens. The results of his work are one of Seattle's beauty secrets. Most of the Gardens consist of lovely landscaping on slopes overlooking the Locks.

A single room of interesting artifacts, displayed at the Chewelah Fun Fair in the summer of 1965 was the beginning of the present spacious museum. The exhibit drew so much interest it was decided to add to it the following year and the idea mushroomed. Walt Goodman and his niece, Dorothy, both interested in local history and historical artifacts, they pooled their ideas to create what became the present museum.
For example, the Museum has a number of themed hands-on exhibits encouraging children to use their imaginations. Changed several times each year to keep the areas fresh, children are invited to play, interact, imagine and learn. The Museum is a unique place of discovery providing a full, rich and memorable play experience for children and their parents.
The Children's Museum of Tacoma provides the community with opportunities for children to learn and grow. Serving many ages, museum exhibits and programs bring families closer together through play, creation and imagination. Unique, hands-on exhibits create a place to explore and dream. Children will test independence and gain self-confidence through the arts, sciences and creative play. Come play!
The museum features photographic records of the Lacey area and limited displays.Outreach programs available to elementary school students related to Lacey history.
