Welcome to the Tacoma Union Station

Welcome to the Tacoma Union Station’s Historic Rotunda rental information site. This unique, historic setting is perfect for many occasions. Art displays by Dale Chihuly, magnificent marble walls, terazzo floors, and the original glass block flooring in the east balcony area each add a beautiful backdrop to any celebration.


Here are a few things to know: 

There are three floors included with the rental of the Rotunda, accommodating a

maximum capacity of 800 people in a seated reception setting.

An estimated cost of your event can be provided once the details of your event have been submitted. There are additional security charges for events with over 400 people.

One of the many benefits of hosting your event at the station is the ability to choose your own caterer. We do not require specific vendors to be used. We have a small prep room for caterers to use with plenty of counter space for staging. 

Tables and chairs are not provided.


The Tacoma Union Station is available evenings, weekends and holidays. Some time restrictions apply for regular workdays. The Tacoma Union Station is open to the public  for viewing 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays. Please come see for yourself the grand character of the Tacoma Union Station Rotunda. If you would like to meet with our rotunda coordinator, please visit our “Contact” page.
