Puzzled? Hands-on sessions at the Logic Puzzle Museum!
Thinking is fun at this museum with 60 hands-on brainteaser puzzles to try!
Turn, match, fit, jump, disassemble, shift and slide using the tokens, big marbles, geometric shapes, wood blocks, magnetic balls, toy cars and puzzle parts while having fun puzzle-solving with your family.
The Logic Puzzle Museum is visited in a 90-minute, fun session featuring hands-on challenges and mechanical puzzles to try to solve and is for families, individuals and groups!
There are bells to ring when a puzzle is solved, adding to the fun of saying “I did it!” "One unique puzzle is just 2 pieces, and another is just 4 pieces! It’s just great perplexing fun," said Judith Schulz museum director. Each person may also make a brainteaser puzzle to keep for more fun later. The museum has been featured in Games, World of Puzzles Magazine and on Discover Wisconsin TV. Puzzle types include mechanical, packing, block, sliding, edge matching, transfer styles and other puzzle styles. In additional to mechanical puzzles there are rebus puzzles, magic eye puzzles, naming puzzles, and hidden picture puzzles to try. The exhibit showcases vintage and antique puzzles, 101-year-old rebus name puzzles, Chinese Checker boards, a sliding block puzzle collection, old ads and memorabilia.
“Visitors may see a 1905 ad offering $10,500 in prizes for a solution; but note, the contest deadline of Sept 1, 1905 has long passed. The fun of solving the puzzle is still available!” added Schulz.
The "figure-it-out" fun at the Logic Puzzle Museum is for adults, teens, families and children, ages 5-105, though not younger. Admission during posted sessions is $10 per person.
