Great local museum with lots of excellent outdoor tours. The museum was paid for by famed Japanese art collector and local philanthropist Mary Griggs Burke.

Great for the whole family. Exhibits change yearly so there is always something new to see. Be sure to check out their Raptors of the Northwoods presentation.

“The "Big Fish" as it has come to be known, is the star of teh Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame. The musky sits on an 88,000 gallon pond, and has an observation deck in the mouth that can hold up to 20 people, looking out on Lake Hayward, the museum grounds and further. ”

“Must Visit! A little bit of Colorado nestled in Northern Wisconsin. The loop is only about two miles, but full of beautiful scenery!”

Bar
“The best burgers! Open and social bar and restaurant. Taps, cocktails, and late night frozen pizza if you missed the grill. Pool table, modern juke box, shake-a-day. Enclosed outdoorish smoking area. You have to try the ring skill game up front by the picture window. Simple concept, difficult to hook the ring, and super addicting. You’ll be saying, just a few more tries!”

“15 minutes south in Washburn but worth the drive! Breakfasts and lunches with fresh, local ingredients. Salads, soups, sandwiches, baked goods, desserts, bread, coffee, local producer products. Great vegan and gluten free options. ”
