The exhibit "Progressive Appleton" was super interesting and really interactive. You don't just shuffle through reading useless material. All of 'stations' have concise yet interesting information, with some using QR Codes for the Smartphone users. (Good reception, too!)
Being a native Appletonian, I finally learned where this awesome city came from. Appleton was pretty snazzy back then and made huge advances, technologically and socially. Whether one is new to the area or lived here their whole life, there's something you probably didn't know in this exhibit.
The festive design related the past Appleton to now. It wasn't dreary or monotone. Thank goodness! The exhibit was completely designed locally, too - props to the curator!
Currently lives in Madison; grew up in Appleton.
