This was a great find on our day trip to Kenosha. We spent about 2 hours roaming around the exhibits. The museum is well laid out and full of interesting information about the history of the area... more »
There is a reason why this is one of the must see places in Kenosha! This museum is much smaller if you're comparing it to the ones in Milwaukee and Chicago, but with its prime lakefront location, huge free parking lot, and no entry or exhibition change ($5 recommended for donation), this place definitely is worth visiting. They have a beautiful Native American exhibit and a huge mammoth fossil.
Nice museum with great exhibits, and changing exhibits on the upper level. There are activities for the kids, and a beautiful gift shop with unique items. The museum is free but we always leave a donation. Everyone working here is very nice and helpful. There are special event weekends with food, crafts, musical entertainment, too much to list. Check out the website for more info.
