Rhinelander - Rhinelander Logging Museum

About Us :

Located in Rhinelander, the Home of the    Hodag,  the Logging Museum is the only authentic logging camp in Northern Wisconsin. Here, you can go back to a time that has long been forgotten, the days of Boom Sticks, Bullwhackers, Cant hooks, Tote Roads, and Cook Shanties. The Rhinelander  Logging Museum is a true to life replica of a lumber camp from the 1870's, when Northern Wisconsin was still a virgin forest. The Logging museum is a perfect way to start your Northwoods vacation.

The Museum is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, 10-A.M. to 5-P.M. daily. There is no admission charge, but donations are greatly appreciated.  Don't forget your cameras.

Very nice utilitarian park located in the "middle" of town. Convenient central location makes it easy to get to and enjoy. Modestly "furnished" but something to do for everyone. Great for walking, walking your dog, play gym for kids, several picnic area including a roofed seating area, baseball fields, and of course the Logging Museum. Great during winter as well. A mini ice rink is set up. Historically been the site for the Oneida County Fair in late summer. One of the best place in Rhinelander to play Pokemon Go. Two gyms and close to a dozen Stops you can hit walking, making it fantastic to restock and get you steps in!

A nice collection of historical logging and rail equipment. A good historical reference of local life in the early logging days of Rhinelander with a blacksmith shop, sawmill, schoolhouse, lumber camp, and a CCC house. There is also a small outboard engine collection and some old fire equipment.

This is a great little museum complex! Staffed by volunteers, who share their experiences or those of their parents or grandparents, who went to school in a one room school house, or worked in a Civilian Conservation Camp, on the railroad, or in a logging camp. Living history at it's best! Highly recommend!
