I enjoyed looking over the barn with all the names of people who have signed with the date they were there. It would have been nice to have access to paint instead of the fine marker I had to post our names, so we did it on one of the pier ties instead.

Nice place to take a few pictures, and to read all the different things written on the building. We didn't go inside, but a good photo op from the outside.

This is one of the more unusual things to see in Door County. People go to great lengths to add their names or just initials. Some bring ladders to reach the roof peaks. Very unique and also has a nice view of the bay and sunsets.

This interesting little gallery gave us a chance to get acquainted with the works of all the artists in Door County. It is located on the water. Absolutely beautiful.

We prefer to call this Andersons Dock. There is not an artist in Door county that hasn't painted this building. It sits on the end odf dock on the bay and has many signitures on it from past centuries. It is a one of a kind. If you are intrigued by it, go back south to Fish Creek and vist... More

I have to admit I have been here many times, but it is never open when we are there so I have never seen the inside. Outside is a great place for us to take some pics every year.

This was a fun little place to take pictures. We did go in the art gallery, but mostly I think people visit to see the outside of the building. The lady in the gallery was welcoming and informative.

Go for the art and as an added bonus, do a little of your own outside. You feel like you are doing something bad when you are adding your name to the building. Please be respectful though and do not cover other people's names. It was sad to see how many have been recently painted over. No spray paint! Bring... More

Have been coming here for over 15 years and enjoy their shows. Feature many talented local artists and we have bought numerous pieces for our collection. Enjoyed the Community Mosaic Project at this visit and bought an Exquisite Corpse fall 2015.

Definitely stop by to write your name on the wall. This is a Door County tradition for many people, and kids in particular seem to like it. The exhibits inside change, of course, and it's pretty hit-or-miss on the quality. Still, worth the 10-15 minutes it takes to add your tag to the wall and look around.
