Pacific Bonsai Museum
Gnarly honors a lifetime of work by local, international legend Dan Robinson. As Robinson turns 80-years-old, Pacific Bonsai Museum looks back on his still-flourishing career as an American bonsai renegade who pioneered unorthodox techniques and champions the gnarly, twisted forms of aged trees in nature. From his days with the ‘Bonsai Bums’–who helped establish the Pacific Northwest bonsai scene–to the groundbreaking of his unique local attraction, Elandan Gardens, see a slice of Robinson’s world displayed in installations of bonsai, rock, and wood representing each decade of his career.
Pacific Bonsai Museum is located at 2515 S 336th Street, Federal Way. The Gnarly exhibit is located in the pinwheel display area. The Museum is open Tuesday-Sunday, 10 AM – 4 PM, and stays open until 7 PM on third Thursdays through the summer. Admission is free, but donations are much appreciated.
