Interesting, well curated, much enjoyed - we had planned on visiting the Hamilton Wood Type Museum but it was closed so visited here instead. Glad we did!
I wish there were more places like this, staffed completely by volunteers who are so friendly, great ice cream shop, the museum has a lot of neat things, and it is free!! I have two kids 8 and 11 and they loved this place!! Thank you Two Rivers for this gem!!
This is just a very interesting place! Go have some ice cream and then explore the collection of things in the musuem. The Washington House is staffed by volunteers, We met just a delightful lady who took the time to sit down with us and talk about the town and the "old days". It was a great experience for myself...

Military uniforms were interesting upstairs off the ballroom. An old doctor and dentist office display. Ice cream parlor with CedarCrest Ice Cream and Also sundaes are here.
While visiting family in Two Rivers, we stopped here. Nice little place with volunteers eager to show you around. Best part was the ice cream before we left :)
Neat self-guided tour of old jail. Good if in the area, but not as a special destination. The volunteer was very nice and helpful.
The fantastic Ice Cream parlor gets even better when rhubarb is available. Charleton Heston's wife is from this town, there's a display for them among the rooms. A dancehall above has a muraled ceiling, accessable by stair chair, behind the stage, find many historically displayed rooms, volunteers provide for excellent operating hours.
Like a mini Milwaukee museum .. well no stuffed animals. Fun room of toys, great doll house. Upstairs an old hotel room, dentist office, barber, Dr. office from the olden days. Volunteers run an ice cream parlor that is fun and inexpensive.
The Historic Washington House has such a wide variety of things inside that there is likely something interesting to everyone who visits. Plus there is a sweet little ice cream parlor in one of the rooms for a quick cool down treat, before hitting the bike trail again.
There were a lot of very interesting items in this museum. There was a soda fountain where the first ice cream sundae was served and a really great old, original bar and bar back. Good museum for a town of 11,000.
