The historic 1875 studio of pioneer landscape photographer H.H. Bennett has been restored to its 1908 appearance. The studio and attached museum contain exhibits depicting the life and times of the man whose work brought tourists by the trainload to marvel at the beauty of the rugged Wisconsin Dells beginning in the late 19th century.

Exhibits depict Bennett's prolific career, and high-end computer monitors reveal magnificent 3-D panoramas he captured on stereographic cameras he built by hand.
