Wasn't sure what to expect upon arriving, but this place was well worth the time. They have a great assortment of marine artwork, and I was shocked too see some works by Van Gogh, Monet, Picasso, O'Keefe, etc. - was not expecting that in a "small town" art museum. Even if you aren't a huge fan of art, you will... More

The museum is small and well focused. But, this is a very good place to spend an hour. The Smithsonian traveling exhibit on X-rayed fish was most interesting.

What is NOT to like about this art museum? Maritime paintings and paintings from many masters are superior and the museum is just big enough so that when you leave you feel you’ve gotten your fill. I took my senior father to this museum and he didn’t feel rushed or overwhelmed. What a wonderful place for school aged children to... More

Fantastic art from all over the world housed in a beautiful climate controlled modern building by the Mississippi River. You won't see are like this outside of a major city.

A wonderful collection of art. Enjoyed browsing and studying the works. A gem and surprise! Maritime painting and a collection of Impressionist that was truly fascinating. Easy to find just the right size to enjoy during a weekend visit. Could easily go beck and view again.

Great, provided that you enjoy Marine Art. Every piece of art on exhibit has something to do with water. Sometimes it's not obvious what it has to do with water, but it can be fun trying to suss out the connections. It is in Minnesota, but it's not Minnesota-themed art. That being said, it is the best collection of marine-themed... More

This is a real treat for not only the connoisseur of fine marine art, but for the anyone with even just a wee bit of flair for Mother Nature's blessings. Sitting on the banks of the mighty Mississippi, it is within easy reach of HWY 61. Do check it out by all means!

This little museum was such a surprise. We stopped at the blue heron cafe for lunch and on the ledge I saw the Marine Museum brochure. It got me at the mention of a Van Gogh oil. Which was wonderful to see, a very early piece, one of his first paintings which harkens back to his drawings, he even scratches... More

On the outskirts of town on the river, this museum has a lot of charm and is well worth a visit. There are temporary exhibits along with the permanents, so you never know what you'll see.
