Charged $10 for the contemporary arts for sale. Only 2 galleries. The backdoor is unlocked. Hard to find parking. Many other museums have far more and better collections with lower admission fees. $10 for 2 galleries is no doubt overpriced. And the stuff is horrible.

A friend told me about this new museum and I couldn't be more impressed. Really cool building that I'm assuming has a lot of history. Did I forget to mention it is free. Wausau has become our favorite little get away.
