The Marathon County Historical Society offers a variety of both guided and self-guided tours.  Guided group tours are available for both large and small groups and must be scheduled in advance. 

Available Tours

Yawkey House Museum

Individuals and groups will receive a guided tour of the Yawkey House Museum. Groups of 25 or more will be split into smaller groups and should allow for extra time.

Current Exhibits

Our rotating exhibits are housed at the Woodson History Center.  The exhibits are designed to be self-guided, but guided tours are available for groups.  With a guided tour, you will hear stories and learn historic facts that are not found in our self-guided tours. 

Walking Tours

Take a stroll through the historic streets of Wausau and learn about the architecture and people who once lived there.  Both guided and self-guided tours are available.

Driving Tours

This driving tour takes you on four tours around Marathon County pointing out historic landmarks and giving brief historic details about each landmark. The 24 page booklet contains maps, stories, historic facts and many historic photographs for each tour.
