Very nice afternoon visit. Love the old feeling of the building even down to the floor creeks and the old bathrooms on the lower level. Very interesting display on asylums in Wisconsin. We also enjoyed the homeless in Wisconsin display. We found it very informative. We also really enjoyed the Houdini exhibit, lots of fun interactive things to try out.

Great exhibits. Love the gift shop... has lots of local made gifts and reasonably priced. I suggest shopping there for holiday and special occasion gifts even if your not visiting the museum. Old Masonic Temple. Houdini DID!

Very nice exhibits, though the Houdini exhibit was small, and seemed geared much more towards young children. Still offered interesting facts about the man and his tricks, but guess we were expecting a little more. Beautiful building with a giant mural painted on the side.

Visited the Asylum exhibit recently. The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful and the exhibit was great. Lucky to have this museum in Appleton.

Wonderful exhibits. Hands on exhibits made it super intriguing for the kids as well as the adults. Informative and educational. Highly recommend this museum when visiting Appleton.
