Wife with the boys, I was unimpressed but the boys were having fun. I suppose its like walking around a baseball museum. You're either interested or your not. There were some very pretty flowers and landscape to look at. Husband says its the biggest collection of boat motors he's ever seen.

While visiting with my 4 year old nephew he really enjoyed being able to fish in the pond which surrounds the large Muskie. He also enjoyed going into the mouth of the fish and taking pictures. In the museum it was fun to see how motors and other fishing gear had changed over time. This is a fun place to... More

I drug my husband here on a rainy day during our week-long fishing trip. While he would have preferred to be sitting out on the boat in his rain suit, he enjoyed it. Lots of interesting artifacts to see and lots of opportunities to pose for photo opps in front of the various large statues of different kinds of fish.

Driving through Northern Wisconsin? You have to stop at the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame. This is a throw back to the days when anything big made out of fiberglass was worth stopping at. I enjoyed myself. Fun photo opportunity. Not a lot of content but hey, the worlds BIGGEST muskie? Wow!

It is something to see...once. I don't know why I keep going back. The whole place seems like it's stuck in the 70s. $8 to get in and it never changes. Everyone in line had coupons except me, so keep an eye out.

Even if you don't fish, this is a great place to visit. There are very interesting exhibits to view. Locals enjoy the Hall of Fame as much as visitors.

No one in our group fishes, but had to stop by. It was still pretty interesting. Last room a bit much, but you can't beat standing in the mouth of the big muskie.

I visited the hall of fame and museum for the first time today (June 21, 2016). This place is a treasure. It has a very unique and large collection of mounted fish - from muskies, to bass, to panfish, to trout, to salmon and even South American freshwater fish, as well as some popular and rare North American saltwater fish....

We were traveling through Wisconsin and stopped in for a short visit. My husband and son are really into fishing, so they enjoyed it better than me. There is so much stuff that it is almost overwhelming. We were excited to see some names In The Hall of Fame that we know, and took pictures there. If you want to... More
