What's New?

Now in our temporary exhibit area

April through mid-Sept 2014, view our new exhibit Community of Courage: A Japanese American Story.

This exhibit documents the strength and resilience of the Bainbridge Island Japanese community after the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese Imperial Navy.

This summer, if you're on a Holland America cruise ship leaving from Seattle, you have an opportunity to see an onboard presentation from one of our rangers. On embarkation day, Klondike Gold Rush park rangers will be talking at 1:30 PM on the ms Westerdam and ms Amsterdam. Check your ship's daily activity sheet for the location for the 30 minute long program about the Klondike Gold Rush, Seattle history, and Inside Passage.
