“Nice local museum”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

Not a very large museum, but it's a good fit for the area. They do a great job bringing in wonderful exhibits that are always enjoyable. It's donation and volunteer based so only spend what you're comfortable with. It's a nice way to spend some time in Wausau. Check out their website for the latest news.

“World Class Museum”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Always a great presentation, not just during the fantastic Birds in Art display. The outdoor sculpture park is excellent and continues to grow. Our international guests think it is a fabulous museum and are impressed that a town the size of Wausau would have a world class museum like this. We visit several times a year because the exhibits change.

“Excellent museum - loved the Owen Gromme exhibit.”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

The building fits right into a lovely near downtown neighborhood on the side of a hill. All the paintings are well displayed and the sculpture garden is thoughtfully laid out too. Worth a trip - expect 1 to 2 hours depending upon how long you like to linger and look a things.
