  • Been here several times and it's inspiring every time. Lots of ocean and gardening inspired art and photography, such as green gulch art and plastic jewelry reclaimed from the Pacific ocean...  more »
  • This gem of a museum never disappoints. They always have very interesting and diverse shows in the main galley. The coastal history gallery is full of interesting photos and information.  more »
  • Bolinas is everything, a sensory experience of peace. love and connectivity to everything
  • A delightful surprise - a diverse and I think significant collection of art from local artists, and a few historical artifacts in a pleasantly maintained courtyard and music garden. And then you are there along the cool northern California coast and the sounds of the birds and sea winds. And the odd dog or two wandering around ... it is Bolinas after all -- although it is now ridiculously expensive and uber-trendy west Marin County.
