The museum offers a variety of educational opportunities. Our onsite programs, developed by museum staff and our teacher docents, serve all age groups and include classroom, youth group and adult programs.

The resource library is available to visitors for research into the Island’s past and includes thousands of photos, biographical files and neighborhood records.

The museum also facilitates tours of Bainbridge Island historical sites such as the annual Historic Tree walk, and visits to the Agate Pass petroglyph and the Japanese American Exclusion Memorial.
