First and foremost, thank you so much for your ongoing support!
We were thrilled to hear the announcement from Governor Jay Inslee’s office that the Northwest Region in his Roadmap to Recovery plan has been moved to Phase 2, allowing museums to reopen at 25% capacity. BIMA reopened to the public on Friday, February 19 and will be open daily from 10am-5pm.
The reopening includes all galleries and the Museum Store. The BIMA Bistro will continue its popular Tuesday night take-out dinner service and will reopen for daily service at a later date. Due to restrictions on events, BIMA has refocused many of its popular programs to virtual offerings. Explore the website for more information on upcoming virtual events.
In addition to our excitement about reopening, we’re pleased to announce that we will be featuring all-new exhibitions throughout the museum:
Paul Rucker: FOREVER
Kimberly Trowbridge: Into the Garden
Selections from the Permanent Art Collection

Dia de los Muertos ofrenda
BIMA is excited to host it’s sixth annual Dia de los Muertos celebration. The festival centerpiece is a traditional ofrenda, a colorful, multi-paneled shrine created by artist Araceli Cruz to which visitors can add their own mementos honoring those who’ve passed into time. The altar is accessible to the public each day during museum hours (10 AM-6 PM) from October 26-November 3.
