First history museum in Wisconsin if you driving up from Illinois
Sep 2019
This museum seems to be open year around, according to posted schedule, unlike Kenosha Lighthouse Museum right behind it, which is open generous 6 months of the year still. Kenosha is the southernmost city in Wisconsin on Lake Michigan, so if you're traveling from chicagoland and are interested in local history, this should be your first stop. Kenosha was a home to Nash brand of cars of yesteryear, and several beautiful pieces in this museum reflect on that legacy.

Small but interesting
Nov 2019
Unfortunately, the museum had sustained some water damage from a surge of Lake Michigan and the automobile section was closed. (We'll be back for that!) The rest of the museum is small but packed with interesting artifacts, including a section on women. It is free and definitely worth a visit.

A great place to learn about Kenosha and its history. There is a lot more to Kenosha than most people think and this is a great place to learn!

Best secret in Kenosha. Well done. Certainly not a monster museum like in chicago, but exceptional work.

Donations will keep this museum open but it’s the volunteer that will teach how it was many years ago. For you car guys give this place a try, you will find some real nice amc muscle cars. Military will like the ww1 section too. Kids will love the old toys on display. So much to see, give it 1-2 hours.

I never knew Kenosha had such an interesting past! This is a very good showcase of local history and accomplishments. It was a delight talking with the volunteer attendant. The exhibits are very well designed. And it held the interest of our grandkids, too.

Neat little museum off the harbor that showcases the history of the city. Most popular exhibit are the old cars they have on display and change out every so often. Admission is free so can’t really beat that!

Entry is a donation. Staff person was friendly. A lot of interesting stuff to see and read about. Gift shop was nice but they need to update their register and sales process.

Spend some time Kenosha visiting the Past
Feb 2018 • Friends
The History Museum is rich with our city past. Our Volunteer will welcome you and answer any questions. Many industries are featured here...such as the AMC Cars! Several Oldies on display!
The first thing I noticed ( and always come back to!) is the TOYS and GAMES section. Stand and look to relive your childhood memories you thought you forgot!
Musical instruments by Vito / LeBlanc made here are on display for your school band memories too.
So much that makes up a city that supported families has gone into the displays herein. You've gotta LOVE the PAST...it's a part of all of us! Enjoy.
