Unfortunately, our recent trip to Bainbridge Island was a bust. We learned that day that when it rains in Seattle, it really comes down. Walking in rain is not fun and it is even worse when you go to an art museum with no art...More

We truly enjoyed the art on display here. The book room was especially interesting. Friendly staff, beautiful outdoor space, and a great store, too! Next time we plan to eat in their Bistro (we arrived later in the day and it was closed).
