Step into the past with us.
This new 90 minute interactive, guided experience will give you exclusive access to select buildings, landscapes and collections at Old World Wisconsin as you travel the path of immigrant families coming to Wisconsin and becoming American. A costumed host will lead small-groups of not more than 16 guests to three of our historic structures where you will put yourselves in the shoes of early immigrants. You will explore choices, hold history in your hands and make connections to your own family story.
Note: The site will not be open for self-guided exploration. Make sure to visit us on Saturday and Sunday, September 8 through October 14 for hands-on history for all ages.
