I can't imagine why anyone would want to look at paper weights. They do have special displays once in a while. I guess if you are looking for something to do it is inexpensive so you won't have to waist a lot of money on it.

I grew up in Neenah and took advantage of the art classes offered here. They are a unique museum offering rotating displays of all walks of art, and the glass paperweight collection is out of this world!

The permanent collection is well worth a visit. Also there are traveling glass exhibits nicely displayed in a beautiful old mansion on the shores of Lake Winnebago. And once done, you must visit the gift shop for unique and beautiful items.

This is a great stop to see unique paper weights and other artistic creations. Pack a picnic lunch and walk across the street to Riverside Park along the Fox River. You are also within walking distance of lighthouse point, the library, Shattuck Park, and the Library.
