About General Admission
For centuries, people left old worlds for new life in Wisconsin. They faced unfamiliar landscapes and languages, learned to establish farms and communities, and blended the old with the new. Welcome to the world they created. Welcome to Old World Wisconsin.
Through stories of perseverance, explore the lives of those who called this place home. At the core of the storytelling is the understanding that history is about the past, present, and future, and is a story we tell together.
As the temperatures heat up, so does the fun! Visit homes, farms, gardens, and landscapes spanning nearly 100 years of Wisconsin rural life. Immerse yourself in stories of perseverance and the power of place that connect families from across the region and across time. Join costumed staff to get hands-on with history with gardening, cooking, running a farm or business, attending school, and of course, enjoying fun and games on a hot summer day. Time Travel Tokens let you shop like it’s the 1880s! While in the Crossroads Village you can be a part of the story and enjoy a soda water at Four Mile House, make your own key chain in the Shoe Shop, find a treat in the General Store, or buy a hook at the Blacksmith Shop. New for the 2022 season, tap into Wisconsin's brewing history with demonstrations and samples of historically inspired beer in the brand new Brewhouse!
