Very friendly service and staff. Super cheap. And reasonable. Plenty of seating. Outdoor is wonderful great view of the Harbor Park. Ice cream is unlike any other. The theater upstairs is neat.

HOME OF THE ICE CREAM SUNDAE
Oct 2019 • Couples
If you’re around Two Rivers, WI you should take the time to stop in and check out the Washington House. Definitely a very cool historic building. Volunteers give tours of the house and you can still get ice cream. If you want to see the whole building make sure you have about an hour. They do have very limited hours, so make sure you check and see if they are open before you go. It’s worth your time to check it out and eat some ice cream at the end. The ice cream is very good but make sure you have cash with you to buy it.
“A three-story immigrant hotel built in 1850. Contains an original 1890's saloon, ballroom and a staffed replica of Ed Berners' Ice Cream Parlor, where visitors may enjoy ice cream treats and fountain service. Berners invented the ice cream sundae in 1881 in Two Rivers”

A piece of Two Rivers

Stopped in & met a gentleman who has lived in Two Rivers all his life. Lots of memories related to the items showcased in this historic location. Of course, an ice cream sundae is the main reason to stop! Tasted great.

Museum and ice cream parlor
Aug 2019 • Couples
Unfortunately there wasn't any volunteers there to give us the tour but we did stop and the ice cream parlor to have a sundae. The toppings were rhubarb and caramel. The lady who serves us was very friendly and the parlor was nicely decorated.

Interesting museum, good ice cream parlor.

Interesting collection of memorabilia. We especially liked a large collection of Norman Rockwell figurines and a large Victorian doll house.

Delightful place to visit!
Jul 2019 • Family
The ladies working at this museum were so delightful and very helpful. The museum is filled with unique items and it is well worth visiting. Cedar Crest ice-cream is delicious and the prices were well worth it. $2.25 for a single scoop in a cake cone or dish and only $2.75 for a single scoop waffle cone. Believe me, one scoop is more than enough! If I had noticed the menu earlier, I would have ordered the sundae in the take-home "birthplace of the sundae" dish. They only accept cash so be prepared for that but there is an ATM on site.

Neat Place

Cool place to stop. Ice cream is good but over priced. Service was average. Lots of history and worth the stop though.
