WISCONSIN 
The Indian heritage of the Badger State provided the inspiration for the modern tepee that houses this exhibit. The displays tell the stories of Wisconsin's farms, industries and great outdoors. Outside the pavilion, experts demonstrate fishing and archery techniques. A 17-ton cheese, said to be the world's largest, is displayed on a huge, air-conditioned van, protected by chromium and glass. A cafeteria and a beer garden are located in the area, which is set amid pine trees.
* Admission: free.
