The Washington State History Museum in downtown Tacoma maintains three permanent exhibits. One is about the history of Washington State and relation to the Pacific Northwest with artifacts from Women's Suffrage, Industrialization, Native American Tribes and items such as Clovis Points. The top floor of the museum contains the History Lab, where visitors can explore and learn about history in a more hands-on fashion with multiple interactive exhibits. Also on the top floor is the permanent model train layout, said to be the largest in the state at 1,800 sq ft. This is the basis of the annual Model Train Festival that encompasses the museum. The museum is owned and operated by the Washington State Historical Society.
