Always enjoy going into the museum. Learn something knew about Wis. Rapids ever time. If you have questions...there is always someone there to answer them or find the answer. Very educational and a nice view of the river and gardens surrounding the museum.

A long time regular visit for us, events that are held each year are worth the stop for home town flavor.

This was a great, volunteer run local museum. There are some neat artifacts including old toys, information about the cranberry industry, paper industry. Docents were knowledgeable. The house is beautiful and worth a visit if you have time.
