Small museum gallery curating shows of professional quality local artists. A visit to the museum makes a nice break from browsing the many small shops in La Conner.

Loved the Paul Havas show recently - even came back a second time to see it before it was gone! Great art museum with a lovely room full of large paintings and a second full of gorgeous glass. Upstairs some really fine examples of Northwest Artists. A gem in the middle of La Conner!

What a perfect museum. It is big enough to have interesting displays for the museum-goer, but small enough to be palatable for the I-don't-like-museums crowd. And the fact that it is free to the public, and it rotates exhibits every three months? Well, it is just wonderful. Fabulous actually. I liked it so much that I joined after my first... More

Well curated, rotating shows displayed in a spacious gallery. Great gift store with items for children all the way to collectors of glass and pottery art.

Pleasantly surprised at this free museum. Nicely designed space. Really enjoyed the current displays of local artists. It was well done. The docent was knowledgeable and friendly.

When we were there the museum was featuring one artist. However, there are a few interesting pieces of Tlingit art and other Northwest Indian crafts.

Spent a good 30 minutes here looking at the current exhibit which was nice. Admission to the museum is free but donations are accepted. The gift shop has some lovely items. Definitely worth a visit.

There were not alot of exhibits, but the ones that were there were very diverse. We had paintings, glass and northwest tribal art... Definitely worth a visit.

We visited the MoNA especially to view the Paul Havas retrospective show, and were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the museum space and how friendly the staff and docents were--they obviously love their museum. The gift shop is a gem, though, and it would be hard NOT to find something there you always needed (or wanted). Whoever buys for... More

This museum specializes in, of course, Northwest art: Washington, Oregon, Alaska & Idaho. Just parts of their fine permanent collection is displayed at a time - it is supplemented by excellent temporary displays. Visit the museum and then roll around the town.
