Great place to check out if you are looking for some area history of Langlade Co or the Antigo area. The museum is housed in a cool historic library building. Best of all it's free!

An outstanding local history museum in an original "Carnegie Library". 3 floors of displays on everything from original settlers, to farming, lumbering, military, schools, and photography to explore. A section on the railroad history, and a whole train to see. And it's all free!

Nice little off the road train museum. My grandchildren loved it. There was a real locomotive that you could climb a few stairs up and stand on.

For being a small town, this cute little place is fun to visit for adults and kids! The kids love the train and seeing all of the "older" items inside the building. Everything from medical equipment, to school house items. And, it's free!

Antigo is a former railroad town with not a single active rail with 30 miles. Good collection of railroadiana but the all-volunteer staff is nothing beyond cordial, and you are best-served by a self-guided tour of this former Carnegie Library structure.

Even though I didn't see this, my dad and uncles visited this museum while we were all staying in Antigo. I wish I would have had time, especially when they all came back talking about it. They really enjoyed it and said it was well...More

The historical society is in a beautiful old Carnegie Library building and the curator knows all about the colorful history of the county. There are a lot of pictures and exhibits. Antigo was once the last "large" town in the northwoods of Wisconsin and played...More
