FOR THE

ART LOVER

Roseau may be known for hockey, but we also have a talented artist community. Roseau features a thriving old-style downtown district with unique stores and art you won’t find in the cities + some great museums, and local sculptures. Pack your bags and plan a week get-a-way where you can shop and explore the arts & history of the Roseau area.

WEEKEND

Get-A-Way

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
– Thomas Merton

    ARRIVAL

    Check into your hotel then head out for a local dinner. Roseau has many restaurants to choose from Chinese cuisine to a classic 50s-style drive in (seasonal) to award-winning burgers.

    EXPLORE

    Start your morning with a cup of coffee, tea, or a muffin from the Reed River Coffee Company located in the historic Reed River Trading Company building, the former Land O Lakes Creamery. Then, head over to the Moose sculpture and look for the hidden bigfoot in the art. Most shops and businesses open by 10 AM so plan to spend a few hours shopping and viewing local art before enjoying a picnic lunch at the Roseau, Gazebo, a Scandinavian architectural design. After lunch, stop by the Warroad Library to view 14 pieces of art by Maggie Adams, then take in a local museum or visit the Polaris Experience Center. End your day with a drive to Warroad (20 minutes) where you will enjoy a pint at the Northern Most Brewery in MN and if Warroad Summer Theatre is in session, get tickets to a play or take an art class if Folk School in Warroad is in session.

    DEPARTURE

    Depart the hotel for your full day exploring that art scene in Roseau, MN. Be sure to do a drive by some of the old brick buildings on Main Street and the Old Courthouse on Center Street to see the architecture of the early late 1800's to early 1900s. Many of these establishments were built when the railroad industry started transporting in the area and several are still home to small moms and pops/family owned businesses.
