This museum provides a good understanding of the Polish community that developed in Winona, where they came from in Poland and their contributions to the local community. There is also an extensive display of their artifacts. The staff and volunteers were extremely friendly and helpful.

I was with friends, one who is of Polish heritage. She enjoyed it more than the rest of us, but it was still interesting. There's a nice gift shop with Polish pottery and other Polish-themed gifts.

Extremely interesting. Our tour guide was wonderful! I wish we caught his name. He is friendly, incredibly knowledgeable, and originally from Poland. I thought that was really neat. I would definitely recommend visiting this museum. It's free and fun. Donations are encouraged. I was more...More
