Experience exciting outdoor adventures with hands-on activities, exhibits and simulators – walk behind and touch a waterfall, use stepping stones to cross the water, step into a fishing boat and reel in a big fish, hit the trail on a mountain bike or snowmobile, and much more. At the OAC, you’ll learn about how the DNR manages state parks, forests, wildlife and fish as you climb the roots and explore the canopy of a massive the oak tree, hop aboard a real airplane, and see what’s swimming in the aquarium and identify the fish. The three-story interactive museum is great for all ages. Make sure you visit the top floor to experience the fly like an eagle simulator and take a picture in an eagles nest!
