Security Restrictions


The Union Station is a Federal Building. With the security concerns in our society today, we have been forced to take some important steps to maintain the safety of the Tacoma Union Station, which is a historic facility. 

For security reasons, packages/gifts will no longer be allowed in the Rotunda. This includes wedding gifts.

In case of heightened threats against the United States, the following rules will apply: 

  • Everyone must provide proper identification to enter the building.
  • Security may request purse inspection.
  • Security may run a hand held metal detector over persons entering the building.

These added security measures will help ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable event at the Tacoma Union Station.
