The Museum reflects regional interests and  the remarkably rich talent pool of artists from Coastal Marin, while stimulating the appreciation of visitors from all over the world.

Admission to the Bolinas Museum is free to all,
as are many of its cultural events. Special fundraising events occur throughout the year including the annual Art Auction and the holiday benefit exhibition, both offering for sale exceptional work from well-known Bay Area artists.

The Museum is composed of five galleries as well as the Wintersteen Courtyard. The Main Gallery offers exhibitions of contemporary art and history.
