Our family is on again and off again Wisconsin Historical Society members. It is an organization that I advise any history buffs to join. Membership in the Wisconsin Historical Society gets you access to twelve different sites in the state, We spend extensive time at the Wade House, Circus World, Old World Wisconsin, and the Wisconsin Historical Museum in Madison.
These photos were taken at Old World Wisconsin. They put on a number of fun events each year, including Halloween and Christmas. They have a cool blacksmith area and a number of working farms with animals. When you dress in period outfits to go it really helps make the experience more immersive. There are typically other patrons in costume, and the employees and docents do a great job including you in experience and help you stay in character.
