If you are traveling anywhere near Baraboo, Wisconsin, you would be missing one of the coolest off-the-grid places we have ever seen. Another traveler described it as a steampunk fantasy, and that is absolutely correct.

It's also a monument to one man's vision. They say that Michelangelo knew what form was lurking in each block of marble before he even started. Well, Dr. Evermor sees scrap metal and salvage parts and makes them into the most amazing sculptures. Fiskars had a bad run of garden pruning blades that Dr. Evermore turned into "feathered" birds. So you say that you have a load of musical instruments that you need to unload? Great! Dr. Evermor will turn them in an orchestra!

We have been there four times, and everyone who has been there with us loved it. Each time came home with whatever small sculpture he was selling at that time. It's free to get in, but you'll need to check the website for times, as they change. We've called Lady Eleanor to verify the hours before we made a long drive.

You can find it on U.S. 12, about five miles south of Baraboo, behind Delaney's Surplus, across the highway from the Badger Army Ammunition Plant., North Freedom, WI Their website is at

There is absolutely nothing on the planet quite like this - a giant steampunk fantasy machine made from a century's worth of industrial castoffs. It's big, beautiful, and inspiring. If you're lucky, you'll be Lady Eleanor - the sculptor's wife - who will tell you all about the backstory - how Dr Evermor built it to launch himself into the heavens on a lightning bolt. But the Forevertron isn't the only attraction - there are other, equally jaw-dropping and creative uses of scrap metal on a monumental scale: a giant "celestial listening ear," a band of birds made from brass band instruments; a gigantic scrap metal bbq cart ... it goes on and on. Bring your kids; bring yourself. It shouldn't be missed. 100% worth getting off the interstate!!!

The artwork here is out of this world, and you can walk around and look and look and look. We got here right before closing on a Friday night and came back again on Saturday morning. If you like rusty, awesome artwork, made out of antiques, junk, and just awesomeness, then come here. You won't be disappointed. Lady Eleanor was very nice and accommodating, even in the blazing July heat. It's a once in a lifetime experience!

Fun stop to get out and look. The sculptures are intricate and in their own way beautiful.

They are not open everyday, even if closed there are a half dozen sculptures roadside to see.

Take hundreds of scrap parts from a variety of sources, pile them all together and most people get a junk pile. Dr. Evermor creates art. This park is made up of cast off iron and whimsical genius rolled into an afternoon of exploration. The only thing needed to truly experience this park is imagination. All the rest is free.

We suggest that if you take your imagination you also take your time strolling through the sculptures and side trails. There is something around every corner. This is such a fascinating engaging spot of Americana that rushing through does a disservice to the genius that creates these structures.

Oh, but if it's summer, take bug spray, too. We spent over an hour exploring and intend to go back to see even more.
