This was a fun and interesting stop. I thought the cost to enter was a little steep but it was fun to take it all in - the different fish and their sizes, the lures used throughout time. Good time.

When I saw the big musky on Discover Wisconsin, I knew I had to see it. The museum is cool, even if you aren't much of an angler. My husband is, and really enjoyed looking at the mounts and baits and tackle displays. But there is also a beautiful garden, and it displays the history of fishing. There are also... More

Fun to walk through and see all of the history. Great displays of old fishing rods, reels, line, lures, and boats.

Viewed all the different displays. Very interesting all the antique motors, reels, rods, boats and other examples from the past. All the fish displays were beautiful.

I went here as a kid and had a blast bringing my 4 year old son this past week. The museum is wonderful and full of a lot of fishing history. My son didn't appreciate this but did enjoy the outside portion of the museum. Of course, going in the huge Musky was a highlight. He also enjoyed the small... More

Probably not everyone's cup of tea but we are a fishing family so we enjoyed the large musky and the museum. The kids caught some fish and before we knew it we were there 2 hours.

Neat place to visit! There was a carnival with rides in the parking lot when we arrived which made it hard to find a place to park.

Arrived at 3:30, close at 4:30. Allow more time if you like fishing history. Would have loved to have spent more time on the fisher people submitted photos of large fish. Motor enthusiasts would love the large collection of boat motors. Fun seeing replicas of large freshwater and salt water fish. Fishing lure exhibit interesting, again if lure enthusiast.
