What are two other “World’s Largest” things you’ll find in Wisconsin?

1. The World’s Largest Stuffed Black Bear

This massive stuffed bear is located in Glidden, Wisconsin and is known as “Mr. Bear” by the locals. In 1963, when he was 12 years old, he was shot in the head by Otto Hedbany during hunting season. He is now stuffed and mounted. With a height of 7ft 10in, and a weight of 665 pounds, Mr. Bear is the largest stuffed black bear in the world. The city of Glidden has claimed to be the “Black Bear Capital of the World” ever since. The local high school also made the black bear its mascot. The stuffed black bear is currently on display at the Glidden Chamber of Commerce, and many people from near and far, including hunting enthusiasts of all ages, have come to see it in person.

2. World’s Largest White Pine Log

Also located in Glidden, Wisconsin is the world’s largest white pine log. This massive log weighs 7,000 pounds and measures approximately 20 feet long. It’s currently sitting on the same sleigh it was brought in on, and according to several lumberjacks, it could easily make nearly 2,000 feet worth of lumber. That alone proves how large this log truly is. In addition to the log being quite long, it’s also rather old. Experts have estimated it to be 500-600 years old. Incredible! This white pine log is located at the intersection of East First Street (County Highway N) and North Grant Street on East First Street.

Other than the National Mustard Museum, which features the world’s largest collection of mustard, what’s another unique museum in Wisconsin?

There are several unique museums in Wisconsin, including A World of Accordions Museum in Superior. This unique museum has a collection of more than 1,300 accordions, making it one of the largest accordion museums in the world. Each of the accordions are also placed in chronological order so visitors can easily see how they’ve evolved over the years. This museum also has two rooms filled with accordion music, accordion periodicals, and accordion history. Whether you’re a fan of accordions or not, you’ll want to visit this museum. There’s not another museum quite like it. For more information about A World of Accordions Museum, including hours, click here.
