From it's seaside coastal exterior to an interior that could rival the great metropolitan museums, the Minnesota Marine Art Museum could put Winona,MN on the map all on its own.

While the word awesome may be overused in today's conversations, there are times when one finds a place for which the word must have been coined. One of those places is the Minnesota Marine Art Museum. Its art collection includes an impressive mix of European art, a number of which are by impressionist artists like Monet and Renoir. What is...

Focus was on marine art, but encompassed various time periods and styles. Some heat finds in the European art hall

Beautiful art, really a nice experience! My family spent about 3 hours here on a cold Saturday. It was very relaxing and also inexpensive.

Starting as an art museum focusing on river and marine art, this museum is now one of the major art museums in the state of Minnesota. A real gem!

Wow! We were amazed. Museum appeals to wide tastes - we usually spend our free time hunting, fishing and hiking and loved this place. This unpretentious but professional gem has world class art that draws you in.

I visited this with my daughter and was very pleased with the exibits. Most is nautical themed but all was very good. I highly recommend checking it out when in Winona.

We visited specifically to see the visiting Ansel Adams exhibition but we enjoyed everything this museum offered. Pleasantly greeted by a lovely lady, she explained what we could see and where. There are obviously a lot of marine based exhibits but the quality of what is on offer to view is comparable to what any major city museum has. I... More

I assumed this small town museum would be interesting at best. I was wrong. It was amazing. Although the collection is small it is amazing. All of the art had a maritime theme, but there were still many pieces there from famous painters.

In addition to seascapes and nautical-themed art, the Minnesota Marine Art Museum (MMAM) collection includes works from Picaso, Monet, van Gogh, and other respected artists. What a surprise to find this caliber of art in a small town like Winona. Being a photographer, I especially enjoyed the Ansel Adams Classic Images exhibit, which runs through Jan 11, 2015.
