We went to this fine museum to see a glass work show. The exhibit was spectacular! The museum itself is a handsome structure with very nice grounds. The space throughout the building is comfortable and spacious. Designed well for art displays. Another reason why Wausau is one of our favorite cities in Wisconsin. I love visiting this town; and a stop at the art museum is always a must check out whenever we are in Wausau.

We've tried to see the Woodson's "Birds in Art" fall exhibit over the past decade and have always been stimulated and delighted with that show and others. The Woodson is small yet has a quality collection and imaginative curators. When you're in Wisconsin, this art center is always worth a visit. Throughout the year there are about five exhibits of varied themes, not just great bird art: book art and other craft, fashion, iconoclast Wisconsin artists, etc . The Woodson's outdoor sculpture garden is a pleasant short walk, as well.

Children are welcomed. Kids activity area downstairs.
Toddlers enjoy as well. This is a quiet, pretty place to visit year round. Situated on Wausau's historic East Hill. Convenient parking,
accessible for all. Friendly docents. Especially unique gardens.
Fall Bird festival is the annual must-see. No dislikes.

I went in a cold and snowy day, the building is so pretty, from outside looks like a beautiful Tudor house with stone façade. Although it's a small museum it was interesting. They offer an iPhone with earphones for specific tour spots. Well worth it to complete your experience. There's neither a fee for the entrance nor the iPhone. All the people working at the museum was very attentive.

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.
