Old World Wisconsin Living History Museum
Any day of the spring, summer, and fall only 35 miles from Milwaukee
expect to find yourself immersed in historical scenes of
farm and village life re-created by real-life characters out
of the past.
Farmers still ply fields with antique farm implements lugged
by teams of oxen and horses. Women and children work side-by-side on chores that
change with the season from planting gardens in the spring to stocking larders
in the fall. Farmsteads and settlements representing German, Finnish, Norwegian,
Danish, Polish, Yankee, and African-American pioneers dot nearly 600 acres of rolling,
wooded hills as unspoiled as the land that greeted the first settlers.
And an 1870s crossroads
village tells the story of small-town life in America's Heartland. Come discover a place where history
truly lives and breathes. Come home to Old World Wisconsin.
