General admission tickets purchased onsite at a museum or historic site are only valid on the date of purchase.
General admission tickets purchased online expire at the end of the calendar season.
All admission tickets purchased online are delivered via email. Guests must present a printed or electronic copy of their ticket(s) to gain admission to the museum or historic site. If a guest arrives at the museum or historic site without their tickets, they must purchase tickets onsite to gain admission. Because general admission tickets purchased online do not immediately expire, a ticket-holder may use their pre-purchased tickets on another day within the calendar season.
General admission tickets are non-refundable and not exchangeable with merchandise or special events. Admissions tickets may be redeemed for admission of equal or lesser value. Admission tickets purchased online may be transferred to another person. To transfer or gift tickets to another person, a ticket-holder may provide their eTicket link or a printed copy of the ticket(s) to another person. Tickets may be used only once; ticket-holders should exercise caution when sharing their eTicket link; the Wisconsin Historical Society is not responsible for any mishandling of eTickets that results in a ticket-holder being unable to redeem their ticket(s)
Tickets sold or issued by the Wisconsin Historical Society may not be resold or traded for more than the face value of the ticket; the Wisconsin Historical Society reserves the right to revoke or refuse to honor tickets that have been resold for more than their face value.
Old World Wisconsin has different admissions packages depending on the day of the week.
General Admissions tickets can only be exchanged for an admission ticket of an equal or lesser value.
