Pacific Bonsai Museum

Pacific Bonsai Museum in Federal Way

Nestled in a serene outdoor setting, the Pacific Bonsai Museum is a unique cultural destination. It’s one of only two museums in the United States exclusively dedicated to bonsai, placing it among a rare group of such museums globally.

The museum proudly maintains a remarkable collection of 150 bonsai trees, each meticulously cared for and considered among the finest examples in the world. This collection is not only vast but also the most geographically diverse in the U.S., featuring trees from Canada, China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and the United States.

Visitors can admire 60 of these exquisite trees on display at any given time, set against the backdrop of a grand outdoor area that echoes the elegance of a fine art museum.
