Whether you’re a resident or a visitor, Bainbridge Island feels like a special place. Come visit — we’re only a ten-minute walk from the ferry.

The Museum is temporarily closed to the public due to COVID-19 and restrictions in place for Washington State. We look forward to reopening soon.

Public parking nearby. Wheelchair accessible, including parking and drop-off.
