    We took the kids here and had a great time. It’s a great way to enjoy a bit of nature and history and have a little fun too. The kids enjoyed it, not as much as Great America, but they did enjoy it. There were things the children could do like ride an old fashioned bike, help in the blacksmith shop, play with old fashioned toys, and pet a horse, visit an old school house and write on a slate board. They also had a very nice, clean, cafe to eat at with a pretty good menu. The different areas are a bit of a walk but if you’re patient there are free trains that come around every 15 minutes or so to take you to another area. Don’t wear your fanciest clothes. It’s dusty and there are live animals you’ll come in contact with in some areas. There are restrooms to clean up in but I recommend bringing hand wipes too.

    I learned quite a bit today from the staff at OWW therefore I feel my time there was very well spent strolling through my childhood memories. My children, ages 23 and 8 didn’t enjoy it as much as they had very little familiarity with the lifestyle or implements of the age depicted.It was quite warm today so we relied on the tram service to get around the entire exhibit. Parents with little ones and older folks should plan to take the tram often as the paths between exhibit areas are not paved and the distances quite far. Water fountains are numerous throughout the property so skip bringing a beverage that may regret having to lug around. The cafe is located near the parking lot so don’t count on the convenience of a snack to purchase during the self guided tour, bring one with you or stop at the cafe on your way in. Many of the home kitchens showcased freshly baked, cooked or roasted foods of the era with products from the gardens and barns. Fascinating, delicious smelling and hunger inducing sights and smells.Use the restrooms at the gift shop before starting your tour as they are few and far between.Items to purchase at the gift shop are very reasonably priced.I could have easily spent 7 hours there but my kids were done seeing it all after just 2 hours or so. The subtle differences in the exhibited cultures and lifestyles were lost on them.I look forward to returning with my sister, we are both just shy of 50 years old, but I’ll leave the kids at home.

    This is a outdoor museum. Something I knew nothing of, until I visited this one. This is a massive place with a lot to see and learn. A perfect place for school groups to visit. Old World Wisconsin is in really good condition and shows us how life used to be back in those times. School groups may contact Old World Wisconsin to arrange for a guided tour as a very educational school field trip. Impressive displays of vintage buildings left out no detail at all, right down to the furnishings and farm implements you would find in those days. This IS a ‘must see’ attraction.

    OWW is a day well spent. Located in the middle of the awesome Kettle Morraine State Park, it is a beautiful hike through historical wisconsin, or you can take the trolley. I’ve taken my son there at least once every summer since he was born, and I will continue to do so.
