Winona County Historical Society, Museums, and Bunnell House [MN]

The Winona County Historical Society is dedicated to preserving the history of Winona County, Minnesota. The society owns and operates three structures: the Winona County History Museum, the Bunnell House, and the Arches Museum of Pioneer Life. The mid-1800s Bunnell House, which currently serves as a historic house museum, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The society offers guided interpretive tours of the Bunnell House, exhibits and events at the Winona County Historical Museum that chronicle the history of Winona County, and exhibits and events at the Arches Museum which showcase pioneer life. The Arches Museum is one of the nation's few remaining roadside museums, and also includes a log home and barn. The website offers visitor information and a brief history for all three locations.
