The Winona County Historical Society is in the southeast corner of Minnesota. We operate three museums and offer a wide variety of exhibits, programs, workshops and events. Many researchers of all levels find The Laird Lucas Library and Archives, housed in the Winona County History Center, a valuable resource.

Explore Your Past...
Tuesday, March 31, 5 -7 p.m. at the History Center
Join us for an exhibit opening reception! We have brought out our interesting medical collection to explore the history of the medical field in Winona. "Uh, What's That? Marvelous Medical Instruments" will be on exhibit until June 15 and is sponsored by Winona Health.
Bridge Kiosk at the History Center
MNDOT will have an interactive kiosk in the History Center lobby for community members and visitors to explore the history of Winona’s bridges, the new bridge progress, the historic bridge’s restoration and more. Updates will be added to view what is happening now. Through a touch screen people will be able to access the information they want to know through news articles, images, video and computer imaging. The kiosk is scheduled to arrive in mid to late April.
