I stopped overnight in Sheboygan primarily to visit the Bookworm Gardens & was not disappointed. Even for an adult without children, this place is wonderful. Around every corner is another surprise! The gazebo is a highlight, as is the Little House cabin (which unfortunately was...More

Honestly not sure who had more fun, our daughter or us! It was awesome to see these children stories come alive. And learn about books we've never read also. It is free but you will definitely want to leave a donation!

This is a special place created and developed with the vision of a natural landscape gardener with an eye to books of appeal to children. It is a restful--and exciting- place which continues to grow--at the edge of a university campus--which has charm and appeal...More

We had an amazing time. With something for the whole family. Gardens for the gardening Papa, playhouses for the Nana, books to read for the book lovers.

What a hidden gem this place is, from the colorful paths leading the way around the place, to having the children learn by the little vignettes of places that they can interact with their favorite childhood stories. The 3 bears along with the 3 pigs...More

This is a cute place. Fun art, nice garden, books hidden in pillars and places to take a break. This is a place for people with kids. Some fun activities like washing a stone dog or seeing big fish in the pond. Lots of creativity...More

It was a cute place but probably meant more for families than older couples, unless you have a good book and want a cute place to read. It was kept up and clean. Kids seemed like they had a blast.
