SPARK! Tours


SPARK! is a monthly program designed for people living with memory loss and their care partners. While everyone is welcome, the program is intended for those living with a care partner. If you are a care facility with a group of residents living with memory loss and have staff available to assist them on outings, we would love to have you schedule a SPARK! tour.

the Basics

  • SPARK! tours can be scheduled for groups of up to 8 memory loss guests and appropriate staff (minimum of 2 staff members). 

  • Typically participants are in the middle stages of memory loss, but anyone who would like to come is welcome.

  • SPARK! tours must be booked a minimum of three weeks in advance.

  • SPARK! tours are FREE thanks to support from Winona Health.


  • Unless noted, there is not photography admitted in the museum.

  • Please notify if there are an special needs to accommodate.

  • Please notify if you would like a portion of your to be seated as we can accommodate.

  • Please be on time for your tour, our docent guides are volunteers and we must respect their time.

  • Assisting Listening Devices (ALDs) are available for tour groups. These ALDs are lightweight, completely portable, with crystal clear digital sound. The devices are American with Disabilities Act-compliant and accommodate hearing aids. ALDs transmit a guide’s voice directly to listeners’ ears, separating their voice from background noise and providing an enjoyable experience to all.
