Bainbridge Island Historical Museum

The Bainbridge Island Historical Museum’s mission is to collect, preserve, and foster knowledge of Bainbridge Island History. Each year, some 13,000 visitors come from around the world to experience our award-winning exhibits which illustrate the Island’s past as a lumber and shipbuilding powerhouse, and then as an important center for strawberry farming. We tell the story of the forced removal of the Island’s large Japanese American population during WWII, the first of some 120,000 people to be incarcerated in internment camps. We provide a year-round educational program for Island youth and for visiting groups.This year, we are excited to announce that we are also FREE to the public!
