5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2014

This place is famous for its annual Birds in Art exhibit in the fall, but does have nice exhibits year round.

“World Class Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 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.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 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.

“Great museum, beautiful art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

The museum was a great way to spend an afternoon. Sculpture garden outside was beautiful. Lots of beautiful paintings and exhibits indoors. They have permanent and temporary displays as well as an annual Birds in Art display every fall. Free admission and parking!
