Pacific
Bonsai Museum

Photos and movie of the museum

The Pacific Bonsai Museum is located in a wonderfully forested area, close to Seattle. It offers a great collection of over one hundred trees, all from Pacific Rim nations. We visited the museum recently, find some photos in this article as well as a video!

A few photos from the museum

Museum bonsai displays
The displays at the museum are wonderfully minimal. Trees are periodically rotated between the growing area and display area in order to add variety and seasonal interest to the exhibit.
