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.
Address:
S103 W37890 Highway 67
