Spinning Top & Yo-Yo Museum


The Spinning Top & Yo-Yo Museum offers yo-yos, gyroscopes, spin toys, and plenty of hands-on science exhibits…. over 2,000 in all!  Regular presentations and interactive tours make it a fun stop.

Please note the museum requires tickets or arrangements scheduled ahead of time; you can’t just “drop in”. However, several times per month presentations take place (as listed on their website here) and with larger groups custom tours can be arranged. They also offer yo-yo classes.

Logic Puzzle Museum


The Logic Puzzle Museum offers over 100 unique hands-on brain, brain teaser, logic, and mechanical puzzles. Exhibits of puzzles, the ability to make your own puzzles to bring home, even a collection of vintage and – as they claim – “diabolical” puzzles can all be found here. The Logic Puzzle Museum is located in downtown Burlington along “city” Highway 36, right near where “city” Highway 11 intersects. Highways 83 and 142 are close by, too!

Delafield Brewhaus

Delafield Brewhaus


Delafield Brewhaus is perched above I-94 just east of Highway 83 in Delafield, serving up a variety of craft beers including three medal winners in the 2014 World Beer Championships.

In-house brews include the “always on tap” Dockside Ale, Delafield Amber, Pewaukee Porter, Naga-Wicked Pale Ale (named somewhat for nearby Lake Nagawicka), and Sommerzeit Hefe Weizen.  Seasonals include a Strawberry Lager, Golden Promise (featuring a specialty Scottish malt), Green Bullet IPA (with unique hops from New Zealand), Einhorn Bock, a Belgian Quadrupel (10.5 ABV… whoa!), and the Oats and Barley Stout. Additional specialty beers, including some aged in whiskey barrels, are available from time to time.

The bar area and restaurant are adorned with plenty of Brewerania collectibles and old-school signs, and some of the shiny copper kettles used in brewing are smack dab in the middle of the place.

Easy to spot but tricky sometimes to get to, Delafield Brewhaus is along I-94’s frontage road on the south side about one mile west of Highway 83 (Exit 287 off I-94). From Highway 83, turn east on Hillside Road, weave your way past some big-box stores, and it will be on your right just past the big “Hotsy” sign familiar with I-94 drivers. From the east/Milwaukee direction, exit Highway SS (Exit 290) and head west on the north side frontage road before cutting over to the south frontage road via Elmhurst Road or County E/Maple Avenue and heading west.
