The Bergstrom-Mahler Museum has an interesting collection of glass objects. It is well worth a visit if you have interest in glass art and the manufacturing methods used for glass art.

This FREE museum is a sparkling gem in Neenah. There is always an interesting, glass-related exhibit in addition to the permanent collection of very well-curated Germanic glass and paperweights. The setting on Lake Winnebago is unparalleled and the admission very affordable (FREE).

Stopped by after a visit to Barlow Planetarium. It had a beautiful collection of paperweights and glass art. Many of the pieces were behind glass so it was accessible to families but I would not bring very young children there.

Thanks for the five-star. We're glad you enjoyed the visit. We do welcome people of all ages and have an I-Spy game to keep kids entertained, and yes, very young children may be more entertained across the street on the playground.
