The Minnesota Marine Art Museum is located at 800 Riverview Drive in Winona, Minnesota, just west of the Interstate Bridge along the Mississippi River. The building features three galleries, a reception space, museum store, self-service cafe, staff and support facilities. The architectural theme of the building and grounds is that of a turn of the century waterfront and harbor. The collections consist of artistic and historical paintings, marine art and artifacts, folk art, photographs, maps, and more! The collections focus on regional, national and international river and maritime art and history from many different periods.

The Museum features four major art collections, making it a regional and national attraction. The Burrichter-Kierlin Marine Art Collection, on loan to the museum, features oil paintings, watercolors and three-dimensional marine art objects from a variety of countries and periods created by many of the world's most important marine artists. The Leo and Marilyn Smith Folk Art Collection consists of distinctive wood carved and hand painted sculptures that capture the spirit of small town river life. A rare collection of amazing photographs and maps by Henry Peter Bosse reflect 19th century Mississippi River life and landscapes. Finally, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Dredge William A. Thompson will become a river history exhibit, docked adjacent to the museum once decommissioned in 2007 and open for display in 2008.

The museum is open 10am from 8pm Tuesdays, 10 am to 5pm Wednesday through Saturday and 11am -5pm on Sunday. The museum is closed on Mondays and the following Holidays: New Year's Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Eve Day.
