We enjoyed the museum on a Monday and found it to be an hour and a half well spent. Tickets only $5 each.

The small museum has local history and artifacts on display. An easy visit for families with children due to its small size and central location.

I spent about two hours at the Winona county Historical Society and learned a great deal about the Winona area from it's inception to present day. The exhibits are arranged chronologically and depict every day life as well as the development of businesses and agriculture. The special exhibit of furniture made by regional artists was unexpected and quite beautiful.

The Winona County Historical Society is in a large building downtown with a big display area, plus modern meeting rooms and a classroom, and historical archives. They Society also runs a number of history-based events in town throughout the year. The $5 admission charge is well worth it. You can spend an hour or two there walking around, seeing the exhibits, and getting a real feel for the early days of Winona. In keeping with Winona's reputation as The Stained Glass Capitol of the U.S., there's a beautiful stained glass window that depicts many important aspects of the city.
