Two new sites in Winslow are now home to award-winning traveling exhibits from the Bainbridge Island Historical Museum.

The Pavilion hosts “The Overland Westerners.”

This adventure from 100 years ago documents four intrepid young men, including the Bainbridge Island Beck brothers, as they traveled by horseback to all 48 state capitals with their faithful dog, Nip. Their three-year, 20,000-mile expedition is told through pictures and quotes from their extensive diaries.

Learn all about the local orca whale population before boarding a ferry in the Winslow terminal building.

Camouflaging the ongoing waiting room construction, the exhibit “Whales in Our Midst” features large panels telling the story of “killer whales” in the Salish Sea.

The Bainbridge Island Historical Museum on Ericksen Avenue is open every day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and features “An Island Story” in the old schoolhouse building as well as Ansel Adams “A Portrait of Manzanar” in the Bucey Gallery.
