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.

The period displays above old Tavern are neat, accessible behind stage in upstairs theatre. More icecream flavors/sugar free is desirable!

Interesting, well curated, much enjoyed - we had planned on visiting the Hamilton Wood Type Museum but it was closed so visited here instead. Glad we did!

This is just a very interesting place! Go have some ice cream and then explore the collection of things in the musuem. The Washington House is staffed by volunteers, We met just a delightful lady who took the time to sit down with us and talk about the town and the "old days". It was a great experience for myself...
