Join the Minnesota Marine Art Museum for the June Second Saturday, featuring $1 admission and special themed activities based on June’s theme, ‘Gardens’!

Our tours for the day include MMAM highlights tours, which will introduce you to pieces from our permanent collection, and a ‘Looking at Landscapes’ tour with MMAM Curator of Education, Heather Casper, on which you will discover how the French Impressionists and the artists of the Hudson River School saw and painted landscapes differently. Get outside and explore MMAM’s American prairie style gardens with a special walking tour.

Artist Julie Johnston will be taking inspiration from artworks within the museum, to create beautiful floral arrangements throughout the day. There will also be live music in the galleries, everyone’s favorite search-and-find game Bingo Overboard!, and new, exciting art activities for all ages.

For a complete schedule of events, please visit This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
