Another fun place that I took the grandkids was the Northwoods Wildlife Center.  This is where they rehabilitate injured animals and hopefully return them to the wild. But there are some animals that can not survive in the wild again so they are permanent residents there. You can take a tour and hear the stories of the resident animals. They also have animals in the building to see and a craft area for kids. We are studying Owls at our Kids Nature Day this year and they were able to see many owls at the center. They really loved going there.
