Wisconsin Journey

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-group tours 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.

Ticket for Wisconsin Journey must be purchased in advance. Tours start promptly at the following times:

    11:00 to 11:30am

    12:30 to 2pm

    2:30 to 4pm
