  • It's difficult to overstate how important this institution is. On my visit, I got to experience the exhibit of Dan Friday's works, and the museum gives many people their first or only glimpse into the importance of Native American art and artists in this region. It's a beautiful space, entry is free, and there's no downside to stepping through the doors. You'll be glad you did.
  • I thoroughly enjoyed my experience here at the MoNA. I have been dealing with Chronic Fatigue for the past year, so the idea of any museum at this point makes me incredibly nervous. I was able to engage with the art on both the smaller-sized/medium sized first and second floor without feeling exhausted. The art itself was so engaging and relevant that I almost forgot I should probably sit down soon. I'm grateful to have experienced such a beautiful gallery as I haven't been to many museums in quite a while. This is definitely a place worth checking out. It's free, but donations are welcome, and the lady at the check-in desk was quite a lovely soul as was the lady on the shop side. When visiting LaConner, I recommend making 40 minutes of room in your schedule for this beautiful place.
