Drove about 150 miles to take some photos of this treasure. It was well worth the trip only museum was not open only open Friday and Saturday (a reason to return). Only problem was came at the wrong time of day early mourning would be best for photo opps. This mill along with Hydes mill are two great treasuses in... More

My wife and i stopped here after reading about it on the internet. Alledgedly, it is the most photographed site in Wisconsin. After visiting, we can see why. The rustic beauty of the old mill takes you back to a time when life was slower and simpler. Our tour guide was one of only 2 surviving members of the original... More

We really enjoyed visiting the museum. The tour was excellent. The description of how it worked, what it did and what it meant to the area was very good. It was a very tranquil and beautiful place to visit. It is unbelievable that they caught an 8 foot long shark looking thing from the pond (just a joke, you will... More

My husband and I came here on June 21...we arrived around 5:30pm or so, and due to the lateness, it was closed for tours. The scenic out-of-the-way Wisconsin back roads are heavy with photo opps and the mill is no exclusion. With camera in hand, I ventured to the bridge and was not disappointed by the breathtaking beauty! We had... More

We went with a group this time and we enjoyed the trip just as much the second time around. Gus didn't disappoint with his stories, knowledge, and personal touches being tied in with the history of the place and loving his job as a tour guide. From his dress to his banjo playing and singing to cap the tour off... More

This is an out of the way attraction, but a real treat for history lovers. I had no idea that mills of the 1800's were so complex. The owner-tour guide has a working knowledge of every aspect of the mill, and although it is not running these days, he makes you feel as if it could be up and running... More

My family drove past Dell's Museum every almost everyway weekend, as I was growing up. It's still something I like to stop by and look at from time to time.

Like taking a step back in time. Very interesting to learn the history of the mill and area. Guide very knowlegeable. A little pricey, but I'm guessing all the $ goes into maintaining the huge structure.

This is an unassuming location through some windy backroads and in a quiet location, near the town of Augusta. Gus is your guide and has been the guide for many years. He's a fascinating individual who plays the part well and has a passion for its history. The Museum has some interesting glimpses into the past and Gus will share... More
