We live about an hour from Winona and often heard of the Marine Art Museum, but hadn't made the trip. We stopped on a Sunday afternoon. They have 6 galleries, 3 permanent and 3 for visiting exhibits. They have an Ansel Adams photograph exhibit going on now and it is fantastic. They did a great job of arranging them and... More

We've visited art museums around the Country and this was one of the best - especially for it's size. Has one of the best collections of Marine art I've seen and a few items warranted the "sit down and stare for a while." Friendly and knowledgeable staff also. Well worth the time.

The works are well displayed with each documented with... More

It was our first visit to the museum and we were absolutely amazed by the collection of the artwork on display and famous artists.

I saw a recent article about a new gallery at the Museum and decided we had to visit. We were blown away with the quality and array of art presented in a relatively small town museum and at a low admission price. I am now telling everyone in the area that they must visit. With this place it is now... More

There are so many beautiful paintings depicting life on the water. Ships. Icebergs. Houseboats. Many famous artists too - Picasso, Renoir, Van Gogh, Suerrat, Monet, to name a few. It is a terrific gallery in a lovely setting on the Mississippi River.
