Nice Winter trip (just wait until after COVID-19)
Mar. 2020
This neat museum is something to think about visiting in winter, when most attractions are closed, and the marsh itself is uninviting to most people. The museum has a great assemblage of displays dealing with the Ice Age, local animals, Native American Culture etc. It's currently closed due to COVID-19, so you'd have to check their website for the info on when it will open. We stop here once in a while when visiting Horicon, last time we made it just before pandemic hit, either in February or March last year. The amazing figure of the Mammoth (and the prehistoric man) can (probably) be accessible even if the place is closed, since it's outdoors.

Easy Hike with lots to see
Dec. 2020
The trails were well marked and easy to manage. We hiked the southeast end the first day and the north end the second day. Enjoyed them both.

The exhibit in the basement of the welcome center has a really excellent display. It covers the very varied past of the present nature reserve from prehistoric times. Its displays are very clear and really fun, great for adults and chilldren.

Well worth your time

Wonderful! Be sure to go down to the lower level. It’s definitely worth a few bucks: professional level interactive history of the marsh and surrounding communities.

We toured the Explorium and then took the Gold Star Bike Trail. Also drove to the road between the Fed and State marsh. AMAZING!

Well worth the stop for the education inside to the view outside!

Great interactive tour in the Explorium. Kids and adults will enjoy it. We didn't get to walk the trails, but it looked as though it would be a nice walk. Great staff. Looks like they offer educational programming for kids and adults. Fee to get into the Explorium is minimal and well worth it. Fun activity for all ages. Interesting to see and hear about the history of the area.

Unexpected Surprise
Jun. 2019 • Couples
We were passing through and saw this area on the map so decided to take a break. The visitor center is a beautiful building with many interesting exhibits. We watched a film, read the materials and shopped in the gift shop. We did not pay for the in-depth museum and still had a good time. Not having a long time, we took a short walk on the board walk at the edge of this marsh - the largest of its kind in the US. This is a lovely, free, attraction with plenty of parking, excellent bathrooms, and handicap accessibility.

A fun day exsploring
May 2019
This is the nature center you want to visit . We walked all the way around the marsh loop,long walk but enjoyed it and did the board walks too -didnt enjoy the m as much. The explorium is worth the 6.00 you pay we werent sure being adults but we found it cool and informative. Therea a swamp boat you can pretend to ride and things to pose in for photo opts lots of hands on for kids . We had fun here.

Interactive, informative, and fun!

I went with a friend to the marsh for a weekend, and the second day was too cold to hike, so we went through the Explorium. It is really well done, giving the history of the Marsh with a lot of interactive audio, visual, tactile, and even olfactory displays. We especially enjoyed the boat ride simulator.
