  • The Bird Art exhibit was well done. We enjoyed walking through the gardens as well as spending time on the rooftop. Museum is free.

  • Love their annual "Birds in Art" exhibit! Also great sculpture park outside. Just a great free museum. One of my favorites!
  • What a beautiful museum and community space. The exhibits here are just played with care in a bright and open area with a good flow allowing for visitor to spend time looking and understanding each piece. There are sculptures outside along with garden Walk surrounding the museum, and indoors multiple levels of exhibits and a playful art space for children. Plan more time then you think you'll need! This is a Wausau gem.
