We visited LG for a week. Wish we would have started with the museum because the history makes the area more "alive" then just another pretty tourist trap. Excellent exhibits in chronological order, neat period pieces including fabulous stained glass. Lots of great pics. Best...More

Great museum with lots of things to see, read, and examine. You can pick up most things and look them over. Staff was very nice and informative.

We went with a small church group. I though it would be in and out in a short time but not the case. VERY well done, Its worth the admission to see the history of the area.

We walked in at 11am and Jim was just starting the tour, he asked us to join. It was well worth it! He had so much knowledge about Lake Geneva. I didn’t know there was so much history here! We will come back for sure!
