This fascinating, well-researched guidebook describes for the first time in print the full gamut of museums, zoos, and botanical gardens in Wisconsin and the broad spectrum of cultural artifacts and natural history collections in the state. It invites everyone to enjoy a rich variety of sites, from the famous Milwaukee Art Museum to the smallest local historical society. The book: includes more than 400 art museums, historical museums and societies, zoos and nature centers, botanical gardens, house museums and historic buildings, heritage farms, spiritual sites, sculpture parks, halls of fame, and other unique sites; is organized in four geographic regions, with maps indicating cities where sites are found; offers for each site the street address, contact numbers, hours of operation, admission fees, collection highlights, and a witty, informative description; and includes several indexes to help visitors find their own areas of interest. Museums, zoos or botanical gardens are found throughout Wisconsin, in almost every county. These are assets of cultural and natural history preserved for the public's educational and recreational use. With such a variety of places to visit, travelers can easily plan destinations for an extended vacation or short one-day trips.

I hope this book will encourage more people to explore all that Wisconsin has to offer, and, in turn, to strengthen the cultural resources that make Wisconsin such a wonderful place to visit, and an even better place to live. - U.S. Senator Russ Feingold ""Essential reading for travelers and museum professionals alike. The comprehensive nature of Rajer's newest book will enrich the experience of traveling about in our state."" - Richard Zeitlin, director of the Wisconsin Veterans Museum
