  • This is a great collection of artifacts, mainly from the late 1800's through the 1940's, though it felt a lot like walking through an antique shop. We did see some things we had never seen before, so ...  more »

  • We'll I like this place but I'm fascinated by the Peshtigo fire which took place the same day as the Chicago fire but burned far more acreage and killed many more people. There's a case or two of fire artifacts and the rest is a historical museum for the area. The people that work there are knowledgeable about the fire and eager to share
  • A good general area museum, with a concentration on stories of the fire. We were well impressed!
  • Very interesting and neat. Was the worst fire in United States history. Was 39 States. 1871. Entire city etc...gone in less than 1 hour.
  • This is a great musium discussing the Peshtigo fire which claimed more lives than the Chicago fire. Besides the history of the fire, this musium has interesting historical objects used in everyday life in the 1800s such as railroad lanterns, switches, and signals. Also kitchen, school, and general store supplies. They have a neat collection of handmade blankets and spectacles. The Peshtigo fire musium is a must see for any traveler! *museum close to highway
  • Great museum of 'old stuff', some of which I clearly remember using when younger!
