What a perfect museum. It is big enough to have interesting displays for the museum-goer, but small enough to be palatable for the I-don't-like-museums crowd. And the fact that it... read more

What a perfect museum. It is big enough to have interesting displays for the museum-goer, but small enough to be palatable for the I-don't-like-museums crowd. And the fact that it is free to the public, and it rotates exhibits every three months? Well, it is just wonderful. Fabulous actually. I liked it so much that I joined after my first... More

Well curated, rotating shows displayed in a spacious gallery. Great gift store with items for children all the way to collectors of glass and pottery art.

Pleasantly surprised at this free museum. Nicely designed space. Really enjoyed the current displays of local artists. It was well done. The docent was knowledgeable and friendly.

When we were there the museum was featuring one artist. However, there are a few interesting pieces of Tlingit art and other Northwest Indian crafts.

Spent a good 30 minutes here looking at the current exhibit which was nice. Admission to the museum is free but donations are accepted. The gift shop has some lovely items. Definitely worth a visit.

There were not alot of exhibits, but the ones that were there were very diverse. We had paintings, glass and northwest tribal art... Definitely worth a visit.

We visited the MoNA especially to view the Paul Havas retrospective show, and were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the museum space and how friendly the staff and docents were--they obviously love their museum. The gift shop is a gem, though, and it would be hard NOT to find something there you always needed (or wanted). Whoever buys for... More

This museum specializes in, of course, Northwest art: Washington, Oregon, Alaska & Idaho. Just parts of their fine permanent collection is displayed at a time - it is supplemented by excellent temporary displays. Visit the museum and then roll around the town.

This is a first class museum. There is no admittance fee, just a donation box. The exhibits change periodically and are always interesting. The staff is wonderful and tries to answer any question that you might have about the exhibits. Permanent collection items are frequently shown in the upstairs gallery. The museum shop is top notch and a fun pace... More

It is a nice space especially for a small town. Certainly not what we were expecting. I think the focus during our visit was themed around the encroaching tide tables, salt water infusion, and the impact this has on the local farming community. We saw some nice paintings and a few installation pieces which we did not connect with but... More
