Interesting place, lots to see, I spent a lot of time looking at the motor collection and the exhibits in the buildings. Reading all the information as your walking up to the mouth of the great fish is interesting.

There are so many neat old things to see. I am not much into fishing, but I enjoyed seeing the huge collection of everything fishing. It is nice to see these old items being preserved and well taken care of for everyone to enjoy.

The property itself is beautiful and nice to see. Buildings could use a little updating and maintenance.

This is a really neat museum if you are a fishing nut. Been coming here since I was a child. My Dads old fishing club patch is even in there! Look for the Fish Hawks patch!!

If a visit to Northern Wisconsin is in your plans, then a picture with the absolutely huge Muskie is something to do in between larger activities. The facility offers multiple attractions for younger children and a great history of fishing practices and equipment.
