They were closed on a July Saturday, so I couldn't get inside, but I did enjoy seeing the preserved pioneer cabin. The first house in Antigo. It made me think of Wilders' Little House in the Big Woods.

This local, self-made museum staffed by volunteers is a gem, and worth a couple hours of any thinking person's time. Room after room of fascinating artifacts are on display, nearly all donated by local families, organized by themes, including agriculture, local industry, military, Native American,...More

Great place to check out if you are looking for some area history of Langlade Co or the Antigo area. The museum is housed in a cool historic library building. Best of all it's free!

An outstanding local history museum in an original "Carnegie Library". 3 floors of displays on everything from original settlers, to farming, lumbering, military, schools, and photography to explore. A section on the railroad history, and a whole train to see. And it's all free!

Nice little off the road train museum. My grandchildren loved it. There was a real locomotive that you could climb a few stairs up and stand on.

For being a small town, this cute little place is fun to visit for adults and kids! The kids love the train and seeing all of the "older" items inside the building. Everything from medical equipment, to school house items. And, it's free!

Lots of interesting historical stuff. The last time I was there, the granddaughter of one of the original settlers explained the items in the log cabin. Nice art exhibit, too. Antigo Visual Arts has an on-going art sale on site with changing exhibits/offerings by local...More

Filled with lots and I mean lots of local history, many artifacts and lots of local history information. My wife's grandmother lived in Antigo and although my wife had visited the town many times over the years she really did not know a whole lot...More
