The Winifred Museum is one of the newest additions to the Winifred Winifred
Community Center on Main Street. The Winifred Museum provides both Winifred
natives and visitors with a fascinating look at the history of the Winifred area. In
addition, the museum has worldwide acclaim by boasting the largest collection of
Tonka toys in the world!
The museum features artifacts from the early days of the town, Indian artifacts that
predate the town, and natural artifacts that predate people altogether.
For a survey of Winifred history from the time of the dinosaurs to the present, the
Winifred Museum is an excellent place to visit and learn.
Admission is free, but donations are greatly appreciated.
The Winifred Museum is a community-funded museum that relies on the generosity of
