  • Amazing historical location. Definitely a must see if in the area.
  • Rather small but worth the $4 donation to enter. I was thoroughly educated on PNW history when I walked in.
  • The place to go if you want to educate yourself about Bainbridge. The docents are extremely enthusiastic about guiding you through the exhibits. The building is fairly small, so getting through it should take 2 hours tops.
  • Very nice and knowledgable docents. Interesting.
  • The staff inside are really friendly and knowledgeable. There's also a good (is that the right word?) section of the interment of the Japanese-Americans during World War Two.
