Interesting Wisconsin Native American exhibit area with a few interactive activities for adults and children. We visited during the World War 1 exhibit which was very interesting and don't miss the audio tour of it. Stop in the basement and view the photos and artifacts carefully preserved there. Kid friendly activities along with a scavenger hunt. Interesting information and a scaled model about Paine lumber and door company.

Glad we stopped in to check out the museum. It had a lot of interesting & interactive items. Every hour on the hour the Apostle Clock goes off. A very intriguing clock that took a man 6 years to make. Definitely worth seeing. Lots of historical artifacts. The beautiful building was donated to the city for public use.

Very nice museum in a fabulous building. Lots of history about the city and the general area. Natural as well as cultural history. The place is even bigger than it looks from outside! Good for all ages.

Our daughters had a great time at this museum. There is a lot of local heritage and flavor. Our kids particularly liked the Civil War section of medical horrors!
