While in Winona, we visited the Polish Museum on their Tasty Apple celebration day. The festivities were great with yummy Polish food made just like Grandma did, fresh pressed apple juice and music and dancing. Plus, handmade items to purchase and of course the wonderful...More

It's free, and it's fascinating. The docents were knowledgeable, and the memorabilia were authentic and well-displayed. How often does one see a child's doll with a cigarette in it's mouth, an officer's suit of armor, the T-shirt of someone imprisoned for a political belief with...More

Especially for people of polish background . The place had no air conditioning , so it is better not to go on a hot day.

Less than a block from the Watkins plant is the Polish Museum. You don't have to be Polish to enjoy this stop. A good lesson in Polish history in the US

This place was a "must-stop here" for us. Not only is there a wonderful collection of history about Polish (Kashubian) immigrants to the Winona area, but the staff was (and is) extremely helpful with genealogical research. The museum has three buildings filled with history. Make...More

We enjoyed stopping here and there was a lot of Polish history and items that were worn or used in that area.

This museum provides a good understanding of the Polish community that developed in Winona, where they came from in Poland and their contributions to the local community. There is also an extensive display of their artifacts. The staff and volunteers were extremely friendly and helpful.
