Hours

Tuesdays – Sundays (closed Mondays)
10:00 AM – 4:00 PM year-round

Admission is free.



The Pacific Bonsai Museum features outstanding bonsai from the Pacific Rim nations of Canada, China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and the United States.
Weyerhaeuser Company opened the Collection in 1989, in conjunction with the Washington State Centennial celebration. The Collection was established to symbolize Weyerhaeuser’s long-term commitments to its customers, its community, and its forest resources. At the end of 2013 the corporation gifted the entire collection to a new non-profit, The George Weyerhaeuser Pacific Rim Bonsai Collection, now known as the Pacific Bonsai Museum.
There are currently about 100 trees in the Collection, about 60 of which are on display in the viewing area, while the others are held in reserve in a “growing area” that is not open to the public. Trees are periodically rotated between the growing area and display area in order to add variety and seasonal interest to the exhibit. Many of the trees are well-known to those familiar with the art, having been featured in books or magazines. Several of the trees have won awards for quality and many are the work of nationally or internationally famous artists. All have been nurtured with care and patience by skilled hands.

Museum Mission

The Pacific Bonsai Museum collection serves as cultural and educational resource for the Puget Sound region and beyond. Visitors of all ages and cultures will be inspired and delighted as they discover the depth and beauty of this interpretive art form.

Flying Heritage Collection
http://www.flyingheritage.com/
3407 109th St SW
Everett, WA

Saturday August 16th at Paine Field in Everett, Washington
11am to 1pm



Flying Heritage Collection's Summer Saturday Fly Days for 2014 continues Saturday August 16th with
"Luftwaffe Day" featuring the collections Bf 109, FW 190, and Storch in an areial display around noon. A panel discussion will take place after before the air show at 11am Dan Hagedorn, from Museum of Flight, will discuss the North American AT-6 Texan! 
These maintenance flights are planned activities, but somewhat tentative, based on weather conditions, pilot availability and the mechanical condition of the aircraft. Decisions to cancel Fly Day may not be made until shortly before the flight, so if you have a concern please call FHC prior to your visit.

As of today the long term forecast in the Seattle area is for afternoon showers through Friday afternoon, but should be clear and dry for the weekend.

Take your aviation photography to new heights with my Guide to Aviation Photography full of tips, camera settings and shooting techniques for war birds, jets and helicopters.
