Winona is such a beautiful small town and this museum is a big deal. It has a great collection of famous artists, Van Gogh, Renoir, Wyeth, Homer, Monet, etc. It even has a small Sargent. It is well worth the visit for any art lover who might be in the area, but for my father and I it was worth... More

My wife had read some clips on this museum and selected Winona as a destination for her birthday specifically for a visit. We were simply overwhelmed at all aspects of the museum, its location and layout, gallery size and range of incredible art. Never did I expect to see Impressionist artists displayed in a modest Midwest setting along with selections... More

Who knew Winona Mn had original Picasso, vanGogh and Monet. Not to mention other beautiful local artists. It was an incredible experience. We had a great tour guide who walked us through the paintings. Look forward to a return visit so much we did not get to see.

We were on a vacation wondering up the Mississippi River and stopped at the MN Marine Art Museum because it was a starred attraction in the AAA MN book. Upon entering, we quickly realized the gem (priceless) this museum is. Most of the art pieces are paintings with some water in the scene. It has major works by Picasso, Van... More

The Marine Art Museum is located down by the river in Winona. There's a unique collection of paintings and sailors tattoo art. The high light of the collection is one of the 3 surviving original paintings of George Washington and his men crossing the Delaware River. Entrance fee was $7 pp. Plan on about an hour to hour and half... More

I wasn't totally sure what to expect when I went into the MMAM but I was almost immediately in love. There was an exhibit featuring some of the tattoo artists who paved the way for a lot of the work we see today, totally awesome. There were some of the most gorgeous paintings of nature that I've ever seen, just... More

One would not expect to see the many famous paintings the MMAM has in their collection. One that truly stands out is the original of George Washington crossing the Delaware. Phenomenal and totally did not expect to see that, and close up. Same one that use to hang in the White House in Washington DC!

What a find! Excellent private museum (based on a local collection) covering everything from impressionists to local artists with a "water" theme. Well-designed galleries, nice collection, eclectic selection. Do not miss this one in Winona.
