This is a small museum devoted to the history of Cranberries. The admittance fee is only $5.00. I did not realize that 65% of the world's Cranberries come from Wisconsin. Also shown how Cranberries are harvested. This was a worthwhile stop.

This is somewhat like a museum. It is interesting if you ever wanted to know how cranberries are harvested. But nothing to write home about

Upstairs, you'll find treats that challenge your imagination as to can be done with the humble cranberry. Downstairs, an array of old machinery and cranberry harvesting equipment enhance the educational and historical experience of what it takes to grow a crop of cranberries.

Visited during the 2016 Cranberry festival. It's basically a shop selling everything having to do with cranberries. The Cranfest was a huge street fair with all sorts of arts/crafts and food items, obviously with a cranberry theme.

The center's store offers a variety of cranberry products. I bought delicious dark chocolate cranberries and cranberry walnut cream cheese spread mix, but their products also include wine, ice cream, pancake mix, coffee, candlestick, cookbooks, artwork, and more.

More of a cranberry shop than a "discovery" center unless I miss something. Many cranberry products, including cranberry ice cream and cranberry wines for purchase. There is a map to see some of the cranberry bogs, but I felt the map wasn't very accurate.

The show room, and the wine tasting bar (in soda fountain decor) were so appealing and refreshing! The products are packaged and displayed beautifully, and the staff is quite knowledgable.

My husband and I went here last week. I had been super excited to learn about cranberry farming processes and the museum definitely did this. However in the gift shop I kept looking around for staff to help answer some questions about products and no one seemed to be around. The prices were also quite steep!

Great variety of all things cranberry. Happy to be able to taste test many items before purchasing. And, it was enjoyable to learn about the history of the family-run cranberry farms in the area - $12 family rate for the downstairs museum was well worth it.

A visit to Warrens would not be complete without stopping in at the Cranberry Discovery Center. We mostly discovered all the cranberry foods--ice cream, wine, jellies, mustard, and of course, cranberries. Delicious!
