The Cable Natural History Museum has been a community hub for environmental education since 1967 and gained national accreditation from the American Alliance of Museums in 2016. The Museum serves rural audiences in northwest Wisconsin and seasonal visitors from across the country. Interactive exhibits, a new children’s exhibit, educational programs, and a natural play area promote the Museum’s mission of connecting people to Northwoods nature.
Located near the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, the small town of Cable is rich in opportunities for outdoor recreation. This includes an incredible network of hiking trails (including the North Country Trail), mountain bike trails, a National Scenic Riverway, numerous lakes, and more.
