Fodor's Review

From Native American cultures to contemporary social issues, this museum houses permanent and changing exhibits that reveal Wisconsin's history. Past exhibits have included aluminum Christmas trees (Wisconsin once housed the world's largest manufacturer) or watercolor paintings that depict the Driftless Region, an agriculturally rich area of carved river valleys in the state's southwestern corner. State naturalists, authors, artists, and historians host afternoon talks for adults and children, and round out the museum's focus on the Dairy State's unique history and its many contributions to the nation.
