  • 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.
  • What a fun place to visit! Has a sculpture garden and one on the rooftop too. The display was Molten glass artwork and Abundant future which was farming. Interactive thing for children to do. Ipads were offered to see the(AR) pop up vision that the artist has. Elevators and lots of restrooms available. Free admission and a donation box at the door if you would like to do. Sept. Will be Birds In Art. The theme changes occasionally.
