After months of hard work and receipt of the Certificate of Occupancy, the Richard and Jane Manoogian Mackinac Art Museum opened Friday, July 2nd at 10:00am, nearly two weeks ahead of schedule. Just in time for the Independence Day crowds, the newest addition to the family of Mackinac Historic State Parks is certain to be one of the most popular attractions on the island. Housed in the former Indian Dormitory on the east side of Marquette Park, the museum has one of the best locations on Mackinac Island.
The museum brings together Mackinac-inspired art that has been created over the last two hundred years. If you're a fan of Mackinac, this is a must-see attraction. Admission is $5.00 for adults, $3.50 for children 5-17. Discounted admissions available with the Combination Ticket. Mackinac Associates are free.
