Very interactive local museum. Go here first to get the lay of the land in Two Rivers. Volunteer docents are helpful and nice. Ice cream is tasty.

My husband and I stopped in for ice cream on a Friday night. The ladies working were so friendly and nice. After eating our ice cream we decided to tour the museum. It was neat to see all the history of the town and the antiques they have. As we were leaving one of the workers shared a few stories... More

Some construction in area, but it is worth going to. The voluntary staff will tell you about the house where the ice cream Sunday was first made. There are 7 rooms of items to explore on the first floor of this 1850 saloon and hotel. Upstairs there is the Ball Room with stage and 6 sides rooms to explore. When... More

I've walked through the Washington House many times and I discover something new every time. It's just full of random interesting-ness. To top it off, they have an ice cream parlor! A fun stop if you are in Two Rivers.

We stopped in here out of curiosity & I'm glad we did! The museum is staffed with very friendly volunteers who are eager to share their knowledge. We learned a lot on our tour and enjoyed the ice cream offered for a very reasonable price before we left.
