Wausau Area

As the gateway to Wisconsin’s Northwoods, the Wausau area boasts assets centered on the beauty of the natural world, which dovetails perfectly with artwork on view at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum.

Exploring outdoor recreation and cultural opportunities throughout all four seasons is both rewarding and refreshing.

Whether you visit the Wausau area to soak up summertime concerts, the hot-air balloon festival, Wausau’s Artrageous Weekend, or to play in the snow at Granite Peak or Sylvan Hill, the Woodson Art Museum complements all these activities and more!
