Horicon Marsh Education & Visitor Center

The Education & Visitor Center brings a new modern design and provides for enhanced visitor services. This building features a spectacular Marsh Viewing Area with its three-sided glass walls focusing out onto the marsh. Activities at the center include bicycling, fishing, photography, geocaching, paddling, snowshoeing, viewing movies, wildlife observation, cross-country skiing and educational programs. Check out the new interactive exhibits and Children’s Discovery Area. If you're looking for memorabilia from your trip to Horicon Marsh make sure to stop in The Flyway Gift Shop.

Located in the lower level of the Center is the Explorium where you will get a glimpse of life at the Marsh thousands of years before it came to be what we know it as today. The experience is narrated by a Clovis point arrowhead, that keeps visitors company throughout the journey as they view, listen to, touch, and even smell exhibits that document the changes to the marsh over time. Videos and interactive displays greet guests at every turn, encouraging audiences of any age to learn more about the history and ecology of Horicon Marsh.

A world of fun awaits!
