Reviewed By TheWuch - South Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Even on a cloudy day, this museum stands out for its unique architecture and beautifully displayed art. Your $12 admission is a one year membership. The permanent collection is awe inspiring and the current exhibitions "Romano Johnson: Glitterati" and "Gerit Grimm's Fairytales" are most intriguing. The first large glittery portraits the second intricate clay pieces - both engaging. There's plenty of parking and a lovely gift shop to boot. We'll definitely return.

A beautiful flower and plant garden earth sculpture built and maintained by volunteers from the community. This Cretian Labyrinth is 90 feet in diameter with seven circuits. The grass pathways are lined with bulbs, perennials, herbs and annuals, making a walk to the center a special and relaxing experience.

This is a peaceful garden located within Regner park. It is near the ball fields and fishing pond. There is a parking lot nearby.

The flowers were beautiful. The labyrinth was peaceful and well maintained. There are a few sculptures located by the pond.

It's worth a stop!

Eisenbahn State Trail

Reviewed By Driver88 - West Bend, Wisconsin

Many portions within West Bend are paved and good for any type of bike. Abruptly ends to the south. North of West Bend transitions to gravel and favors off road and mountain bikes. Road bike is ok but rough.
