“Always a treat!”

Always free, always interesting, very worth your time. The new Owen Gromme exhibit is marvelous. The sculpture garden is a delightful stroll in any weather.

“Great Treasure in Wausau!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is a wonderful museum and has many great exhibits. The children's section is always a hit with my niece and nephew. Going in the warmer months you can also enjoy the lovely gardens.

“Shaker exhibit is a must see!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Visited the museum this past Thursday evening for the Shaker exhibit and it did not disappoint. In fact, I don’t think I have ever been disappointed with any of the many exhibits frequented over the years. The new renovation is amazing! Can’t wait for spring to see how the grounds turn out.
If you visit Wausau you'll want to go here.

“Beautiful Oasis in Wausau, WI”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

You could almost hear the birds as you viewed the Birds in Art 2012 exhibit at this Wausau treasure, the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum. We spent several relaxing hours enjoying the variety of paintings and sculptures at this classy museum set in a stately building. The outdoor sculpture garden was also a treat.
