This used to be the Mission Schoolhouse for years and this year (2018) was our first visit to the Museum. It's a nice display of Mackinac Island art as seen through the eyes of various artists. It's a nice afternoon visit.

We enjoyed the time we spent there as part of our fort admission. Probably would not have been pleased if we had paid admission. The best part was the old photographs of the island and the Native American items.

Visitors should not miss this small museum, it is truly a window to the past, I recommend the package ticket which includes Fort Mackinac, Biddle house, and a few others! Best Deal!

Thank you for taking the time to review and for visiting. The Richard and Jane Manoogian Mackinac Art Museum is named in honor of the Manoogian's thanks to a generous gift to help create the museum within an existing structure. The majority of the items...More

We had never been here before, but we received a free admission from the Grand Hotel. It was very interesting. The art work is exceptional, and some have interactive narratives. Some of the art depicts what the island looked like back in the 1600 and...More

Thank you for taking the time to review, and we're glad you enjoyed our exhibits and galleries within the museum. However, looking through historic records, no slaves ever lived in or were kept in this facility. It served as an administration building for the federal...More

If you happen to stay overnight at select hotels ( Bay View Bed and Breakfast ) on the island, your admission is free. My wife and I happily put our wallet away and enjoyed the museum. Photos and pictures from prominent events were on display....More

The main floor is filled with historical prints and paintings. The second floor has more contemporary prints/paintings, some of which are for sale.

Paintings and drawings from 1600s-1700s to contemporary art, lots to see in an historic building. Very nicely curated and arranged with sufficient explanation with each exhibit that a guide isn't necessary. Admission price is included with stays at certain hotels.

The day we visited they had a craft for kids (and parents) downstairs and there is a small playground right out back. Admission was included with the Heritage Pass!
