Located a block up the hill from downtown Port Orchard and the marina, the Sidney Art Gallery is a terrific place to find artistic treasures by renowned and emerging artists.

Creative gifts are offered for all occasions: original paintings, prints, pottery, sculptures, wood carvings, metal and iron work, blown glass and jewelry.

The Sidney Art Gallery and the Sidney Museum are generally open on Saturday from 11 am to 4 pm and Sunday from 1 pm to 4 pm, or Monday and Tuesday from 11 am to 4 pm but we are happy to make an appointment during the week. Book an appointment here for days during the week.
