  • A great tour was given to our 8th grade students. Our female tour guide was very informative on facts about Wisconsin and her presentations were engaging for our students.
  • Very nice museum not too big so little kids don't get bored.
  • A pretty cool place for the whole family. I wish it were just a little bigger but it's lots of fun.
  • Very nice staffs. Very helpful. Although the display is not very special, still a nice place to go
