Although admission is always FREE, inviting out-of-town friends and family to join you for a visit to the museum helps the local economy. How?
In 2019, the estimated economic impact of non-local visitors to the Woodson Art Museum was $1,138,496 from day-trip visitors and $1,799,712 from overnight visitors, according to the Wisconsin Department of Tourism’s economic-impact values. So, why not give Marathon County the gift of an economic infusion this holiday season by inviting friends and family to Wausau to visit the Woodson Art Museum with you to view their origami exhibitions?
