Small museum. The displays are organized and informative. Just average for me in comparison to like museums. Still worth a quick stop if you want to learn more about Bainbridge Island's history.
Don't let the small 'One Room School House' size of this place fool you. This museum has a great deal of extensive and rich history exhibits and information of the Bainbridge area on display, things like the life of the early native tribes, the various industries of the region, how the area populated and grew, etc. I don't believe that and average person could look at and read everything in detail in just one visit. My wife and I spent 2 to 3 hours here on our way through in 2015 and it was like having a single bite of a fabulous meal and stopping! Looking forward to a future visit if possible. It's worth the time and nominal fee for admission.
Learned a lot for a small museum. The docent was very helpful. Unexpected display about local music. Recommend.
Nice place to visit with kids and family. Learn history of the island!! Highly recommended.
Wonderful exhibits and info on logging and ship-building history of Bainbridge Island as well as the internment of the Japanese American population, the first community forcibly removed from their homes and incarcerated in the Manzanar Assembly Center during WWII. We actually were able to talk to one of these Japanese Americans, who returned to BI when the war ended.
