11 Places Where You Can Still Experience Old Wisconsin

Our beloved Wisconsin celebrates 170 years of statehood this year. That’s a lot of history that has come and gone, but there are still some places across the state where you can go to learn about life in Wisconsin during a different time. These places preserve the past and do a great job of making sure we can learn and experience our history as much as possible. While some are straight museums, others are much more than that. You’ll walk in the shadows of those who have gone before to build our very favorite state and create the Wisconsin we know and love today.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
