The Minnesota Marine Art Museum’s popular Second Saturdays program is back for 2019!

Each Second Saturday features $1 admission and special themed activities based on a theme. Falling near Valentine’s Day, February’s theme is Love & Art.

Activities include MMAM highlights tours, a "Love & Hate" tour led by MMAM Executive Director Nicole Chamberlain-Dupree, a poetry stroll with poet Jim Armstrong and live music from cellist Rachel Ryan Dahlgren and Heart Strings Harp Circle. Art-making activities include brush lettering and needle felting. Contribute to the "Love Garden" and help grow the love we celebrate with our friends, pets, children, and partners.
