About

Located just a stone’s throw from the Seattle/Bainbridge Island ferry terminal, Bainbridge Island Museum of Art (BIMA) is the gateway to Bainbridge Island and beyond. Home to a growing permanent art collection with a focus on artists and collections from the Puget Sound region, BIMA welcomes visitors from all around the world, from residents of the Island to our friends from Seattle, tourists from the other side of the country and even visitors from the other side of the world.

Since opening in 2013, BIMA has become the cultural living room for our community, the museum’s galleries, auditorium, bistro, store and plaza filled with a variety events covering the entire artistic spectrum year-round. BIMA’s exhibitions and events feature recognized masters and emerging artists that are sure to leave you inspired by their striking work and thought-provoking themes. With major exhibitions rotating three times per year (that’s 15-20 new shows to experience annually!), as well as classes, tours, films, workshops, lectures and events to support, there is always something new and exciting to experience at BIMA.

Additionally, BIMA believes art is for everyone and has a commitment to accessibility, providing free general admission to the museum every day thanks to our fiercely generous donors and members.
