Plan an Event


Surround your guests in the ambiance of art in a versatile setting.

Just a short walk from the Bainbridge Island ferry terminal is one of the Seattle area’s most unique special event spaces—the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art (BIMA). The museum’s award-winning artistic beauty, architectural design, and modern ambiance—plus easy access from Seattle, King County, and Kitsap County, have quickly made it one of the Puget Sound region’s top event destinations for groups from 5 to 500.

BIMA gives you the ability to customize an event for every size, celebration, and budget—whether it's an elegant evening that uses the museum's full-service special events team and catering department or a simple event that just needs a special space or convenient location, versatility is one of our hallmarks.

Weddings, rehearsal dinners, fundraisers, parties, concerts, performances, conferences, receptions, and presentations may all be accommodated in our array of spaces, from stunning galleries and a grand staircase to a beautifully landscaped outdoor plaza and state-of-the-art auditorium. Business meetings and workshops can take advantage of the museum’s technically-equipped conference space and classroom.

We look forward to having you as our guest. For more information, please:



"Northwest Designer Craftsmen really appreciated being in BIMA for our Annual Board Retreat. Thank you for taking such good care of us: for greeting us, having equipment available, for reserving a lunch table. We had a wonderful lunch at your Bistro. We had a very productive meeting, we loved looking at the art and meeting Director Greg Robinson. It was all good!"
