  • The Kenosha Public Museum has much more than you would expect for a small city museum. There is a great timeline display showing the history of the area from millions of years ago to recent history. T...  more »

  • There are THREE museums that are part of the system: Dinosaur, Natural History & Civil War. The latter two being right next to one another. These are all hidden gems filled with outstanding exhibits & housed in state-of-the-art award winning buildings. Their biggest challenge is location, which is along the lake shore in a beautiful setting with unobstructed views to the east. No one seems to know about these places except the school district!! To get there one has to travel through town about 20 minutes from I-94 (very inconvenient for some) but it's worth it. The collections of objects, displays & educational programs for both youths & adults is fabulous...& admission is free! Anyone looking to spend some fun time any day of the week should give this museum a visit. You can look up everything on their website. Bring a friend! You'll be pleasantly surprised & glad you made the trip to a top shelf modern & clean establishment, right next door to the Civil War Museum. Treat yourself, children & friends!
  • This is a great place for locals to go. The museum is free with a suggested donation of $5. The kids will be able to bird watch and label birds they see. There is an area where you ca walk through time starting with the ice age. Upstairs is where local artist will have their work on display. Tons to do and right off the lake as well.
  • This is a great local museum. It is not overwhelming for the kids. There is a Mammoth skeleton there. Lots of artifacts and learning exhibits that sometimes include the local area. There is a room for the kids to do hands on learning and play. As well as bird watching. The upstairs has local art exhibits that change regularly. There is an elevator to access the upper floor. While your up there there is a beautiful view of the lake. The gift shop has related souvenirs but lots of others beautiful items.
  • I think the main attraction if this place (other than the free admission) is the Field Station at the rear where kids can play a little and have fun We walked through the first floor, which was neat, but when we exited by the Field Station that wad it. Kids immediately went to go play. We didn't make it upstairs but that was okay because the kids were occupied.
  • Love to wander through here and just enjoy the space. There are a few displays that change so it's nice to see what's new and the location is beautiful to walk around outside if it's nice or go ride the trolley just for fun.
