History

Nice little shop/museum. Learned a lot about HH Bennett and enjoyed seeing his work. There were a lot of pictures of his work and details on how much he loved the Wisconsin Dells.

Nice museum dedicated to H.H. Bennett's work in the back of the shop. Brilliant layout of Bennett's work, with interactive displays. If you're into photography, this is definitely the place to go! Staff was knowledgeable and helpful! And my husband made the leap, but I failed (stop in to understand this).

Visited here based on previous Trip Advisor reviews. What an excellent museum. Free will donation, and lots of history through photographs. Discovered that the famous photo of the man jumping across the rock was taken by Bennett and was what started the whole thing of Wis Dells becoming a tourist destination!

We have seen this at the Dells before, but decided to take the tour. I can't believe how fascinating this tour was. I am a history bluff, but I think anyone would enjoy.

My wife and I stopped in while in the Dells to learn a little about how the Dells became the Dells. The Studio has a great collection of information and artifacts that shares the story of Bennett and the Dells. We enjoyed the museum and really liked the preserved studio and storefront space.

We toured this museum the day after we took the Upper Dells boat tour. Very interesting photography in this museum of sites we saw on the tour. Also very knowledgeable staff. Well worth spending an hour or so at this museum.

My husband and I had gone through a tour a couple of years ago, but our then 1 year old was with us, so we decided to try again just the two of us. It was very interesting and we enjoyed ourselves.
