Featuring over 100 bonsai trees, this outdoor museum is sure to amaze you.
Pacific Bonsai Museum is an outdoor museum filled with twisting and winding trails that will take you through the exhibits and various nature walks. Expect to see over 100 bonsai trees; the oldest dates back to around the 1500s. Due to the staggering amount of trees, each exhibit presents you with a plaque displaying the tree’s age and type. The trees are examples of old Japanese art forms depicting the mastery of patience and attention to detail. The goal of the bonsai is to grow and trim plants into the shapes of full sized trees. It's said to be very therapeutic and very insightful.
Since the exhibit is outdoors and friendly to all ages, there is constant maintenance and upkeep so that the museum stays presentable and portrays a feeling of peace and zen. The museum constantly switches out the decor, keeping it fresh and unique each time you visit. The Pacific Bonsai Museum was founded in 1989 and originally was known as Weyherhaeuser Timber Product Company until 2013, when it claimed its current name.
It is free to enter, but donations are always welcome. Come and visit Tuesday through Sunday anytime between 10 am and 4 pm and see what this bonsai museum is all about.
