In 2012,the Washington Museum Association presented the Bainbridge Island Historical Museum with the Award of Exhibit Excellence for It's About Time, . The award was given to the Museum for its excellence of the research, design and installation of a comprehensive and engaging exhibit. The exhibit is located on the exterior wall of the museum, adjacent to a part of the Island's waterfront trail. The exhibit is a pictorial timeline that acquaints visitors with Bainbridge Island history in a way that is easy to access and understand.
As proclaimed by Brenda Abney, President of the Washington Museum Association"It's About Time represents an elevated level of achievement to which all museums in Washington State should aspire."
In keeping with that line of thought, the exhibit is reproduced here as a virtual exhibit for the enjoyment of learning more about the history of Bainbridge Island.
