Overview

Old World Wisconsin is a fun way to experience the lives of immigrants to the Midwest in the late 1800s/early 1900s. Visit one of the ten working farmsteads and chat with the farmer or farm wife. Gather eggs, help in the kitchen or wood shop at the new "Life on the Farm" experience at the Koepsell Farm. Check out the 12 heirloom gardens and heritage breeds of chickens, pigs, sheep, cows, horses and oxen. Wander from farmstead to farmstead on foot or hop a tram--at a little under 600 acres you'll want to plan on at least half a day to explore everything. You can enjoy a snack or a light meal at the Clausing Barn Cafe. Old World Wisconsin is also a special place for a one-of-a-kind wedding, meeting or reunion. Or, learn even more about 19th-century life at a special workshop, day camp or school tour.

Was traveling with my wife and friends. We are all historians and heard great reviews from our Wisconsin friends. What a great visit this was. Similar to Old Sturbridge Village in MA this living museum is a true gem of the area.

They have fantastic special events for family. Love the old-time baseball games. My husband really enjoyed the Blacksmith Shop I gifted him for his birthday. The Fourth of July in also fantastic. Never boring. Also has nice trails to dig deeper into the woods.
