The Richard & Jane Manoogian Mackinac Art Museum
In complement to the natural beauty of Mackinac Island, The Richard and Jane Manoogian Mackinac Art Museum allows visitors to experience fine and decorative arts inspired by Mackinac through the ages.
One of the most diverse art museums in the region, the museum’s collection offers no shortage of beauty and history – from hand-beaded Native American garments and 17th and 18th-century maps of the Great Lakes, to one-of-a-kind pieces from the height of Mackinac Island’s Victorian era.
Original photographs from the mid-19th to the mid-20th century present the beauty of Mackinac as captured by the camera’s eye. Featured are the works of William H. Gardiner, including dozens of his famed early-twentieth century hand-tinted views.
The Kids' Art Studio, located in the lower level, is open early June-late August. Skilled artists on staff present a variety of activities that let creativity flow through paint, pencils and crayons.
Art work and Mackinac State Historic Park publications are available for purchase in the on site gift shop.
