Milwaukee Public Museum

In an around the southeastern corner of Wisconsin, ribbons of quiet country roads, high-speed Interstates and bustling city streets beckon you to take a journey of discovery through the state's settlement in the 19th century. Follow trails blazed by settlers who saw the promise of Wisconsin, and rediscover the pioneer spirit that sustained these immigrant farmers, merchants and craftsmen in pursuit of their dreams. Begin your trek back in time at the Midwest's largest museum of living history, Old World Wisconsin, and wind up your excursion at Wade House in Sheboygan County.
