Relive the past, make a memory at The Richard & Jane Manoogian Mackinac Art Museum.

"Nowhere else does such a rare and exceptional collection of Mackinac-related art and photography come together to tell Mackinac’s story."

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.

2012 Special Exhibition: Mackinac’s Grand Hotel
In commemoration of the hotel’s 125th anniversary, this exhibit explores the rich history of the world’s largest summer resort hotel. Through original objects, photographs and works by modern artists, the fascinating story of a Michigan landmark is told. Constructed in only four months in 1887, the hotel ushered in a new era of elegance on Mackinac Island. It endures as a symbol of style and hospitality.
