Bainbridge Island Historical Museum

The Bainbridge Island Historical Museum works to spark curiosity and inspire people to connect, explore many perspectives, reflect, and celebrate the diverse stories of the Island. The primary gallery in the 1908 schoolhouse features a lively, beautiful, and provocative new exhibit. Our Community: Past to Present illuminates diverse, beloved, and previously untold and mistold stories about Bainbridge Island. The new exhibit showcases 13 individual Bainbridge communities, or groups of people linked by heritage, work, hobby, or other association. Each section is filled with authentic cultural materials, photos, oral and video recordings, and text. This new exhibit combines historical content and elegant design with sensory, hands-on learning activities for people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds. The next new exhibit, in the Bucey Gallery, will feature large-format photos of Trees of this Island. Please stop by for a visit Wednesday-Sunday, 10 am to 4 pm. Admission is free.
