General admission to Old World Wisconsin is closed for the 2019 season, but you can still join us this winter for special holiday events and programs. The site reopens for general admission on May 9, 2020
For centuries people left old worlds for a new life in Wisconsin. Facing unfamiliar landscapes and languages, they blended the old with the new and established farms and communities. Welcome to the world they created. Welcome to Old World Wisconsin.
