What Our Visitors Say

What a beautiful museum and community space. The exhibitions here are displayed with care in a bright and open area with a good flow allowing for visitors to spend time looking and understanding each piece. There are sculptures outside along with a garden walk surrounding the museum, and indoors multiple levels of exhibitions and a playful art space for children. Plan more time than you think you’ll need! This is a Wausau gem.
