We went on a day trip to Bainbridge Island and wanted to pop in. Admission is free! You'll get inspired by the amazing talent featured here by local artists. Definitely worth a visit, if you're on the island.

The museum features exhibits from Northwest artists. The exhibits are a nice blend of paintings, sculpture and photography. Be sure to check out the book room to see an amazing assortment of pop-up books! Admission is free.

This museum's focus is on Northwest Art. Most exhibits are focused on regional NW art. It is beautifully displayed and has some very specific spaces such as Print Arts usually displayed in beautiful handmade letterpress books. Getting hungry? There is also a busy little bistro...More
