Sidney Museum and Arts Association


The Sidney Museum and Arts Association established and maintains the Sidney Art Gallery, the Sidney Museum and the Log Cabin Museum in Port Orchard, WA.

The Sidney Art Gallery, Sidney Museum and Log Cabin Museum are currently open by appointment as we ramp up our volunteers to be open regularly.

There is no charge, but donations are gladly accepted to help offset the cost of maintenance.

Sidney Art Gallery

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. The Sidney Art Gallery features a monthly exhibition of works of Northwest artists, from brilliant stained glass to nostalgic watercolors. 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.
