“Small but lovely museum”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

We enjoyed seeing both the historic photographs and the paintings. Reminders of the memories and experiences of the island. Housed in a charming old mansion set near the park.

“just right”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

This is an excellent small museum, with just the right amount of information for people on vacation. The permanent exhibits give you a taste of history, and the temporary exhibits were well staged. I really enjoy the historical hand-colored photographs.

“Beautiful Art”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

I was pleasantly surprised at the varied art work within this museum. This attraction is located next to the Marquette Park. There is a kids area in the lower level of this attraction and behind the museum is a playground for the kids. Some of the art is for sale and some has been donated by families to be exhibited. Great place to spend some time in on a cold or rainy day. This facility is wheelchair accessible and has an elevator to get to the second floor. If you are staying at the Grand Hotel the admission is included with your stay.

“Step back in history at the Mackinac Art Museum”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Wonderful historical photographs depict life on Mackinac Island. One painter emulated Nutting's colored photographs from the early 1900s.

Be sure to arrive early, as this Museum closes promptly at 4:30pm.

“Kids Loved It”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We pop in here often and go straight to the first floor where there is a kid's art area. The projects change regularly and my two (ages 8 and 9) always enjoy the activities. Then we go out back and enjoy the playground.
