Bainbridge Island Historical Museum

042

   Exhibits and artifacts occupy every corner of this little local museum. Included is a very good exhibit, featuring photos by Ansel Adams, about the interment camps where Japanese Americans were imprisoned for the duration of WWII. This disturbing chapter in our history came after the bombing of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese. Strawberries farmers and their families from Bainbridge Island were the first of over 100,000 people living along the Pacific coast to be taken from their homes. 

  The museum is accessible.

   There are a few spaces in the rear of the museum where small RVs will fit.
