202 Sidney Avenue, Port Orchard Washington 98366
The Sidney Art Gallery and Museum is located in Port Orchard's first Masonic Hall, built in 1908. The gallery features the works of Northwest artists. Creative gifts are offered for all occasions: original paintings, pottery, sculptures, skillfully designed handmade toys, wood carving, blown glass, and jewelery.
The museum, on the second floor, features exhibits, including many photographs on early South Kitsap life.
There is also a Log Cabin Museum just up the hill from the art gallery. The cabin was built in 1914, and displays changing exhibits of home life in the South Kitsap area during the last century.
