Description [edit]
Only 35 miles from Milwaukee, Old World Wisconsin is the best place to go for a hands-on history lesson in the ways of Wisconsin's early pioneers.

The museum's more than 60 historic structures range from ethnic farmsteads with furnished houses and rural outbuildings, to a crossroads village with its traditional small-town institutions. The efforts of countless historians have preserved an amazing slice of true Americana - one that will be enjoyed for generations to come.
