Interesting but not really what I expected. As other reviewers have stated that this is the work of one talented man who has carved figures and scenes from the bible. I was disappointed.

It is amazing that one person created all of these wodd carvings and so varied that he was exceptionally creative. It is hard to imagine what he was thinking as he carved each one. It is a little pricey for the middle of nowhere, but the carvings are great.

Truly amazing detailed craftsmanship of wood sculptures. Life size carvings of key biblical events. Comment made "like a bible school trip". Was not what I expected in the north woods. The hanging figure was a little disturbing. Fun side diversion but not a "must see".

Very well done carvings by one artist. It was a nice diversion on a rainy day but I thought a museum would be more diversified. Nevertheless the displays are very well done and worth seeing.

The Museum of Woodcarving is a very unique place. The carvings were done by a local resident and depict many scenes from the Bible. It is worth the time to visit.
