Old time small wisconsin town with small buildingd where they explain what small town life was like in the 1800s. Interesting to visit but a lot of walking around. Kids seem to like for the first hour but soon get restless and bored.

I went to Pinecrest Village with a friend who had not been there before. We went on a Sunday morning in May. We had the whole place to ourselves that made it extra special. We were able to look at all the exhibits and take all the time we wanted doing it. We both enjoyed all of the buildings in... More

Pinecrest Historical Village has a great layout of buildings from the late 1800's to the early 1900's. They have a really nice audio tour for every building describing who lived or worked there and the history behind each building. Every building has actual displays of items from the time period, and Pinecrest is one of the few places where the... More

These twentyfive buildings are well presented, the new visitors center is handicapped accessible, most buildings aren't.

I may be a bit bias here, as I have done volunteer work at the village. I love the place. There are special events that are taken right out of the 19th century. I very nice way to spend an afternoon exploring old buildings, breathing fresh air, and learning some history. There are usually staff or volunteers about to inform... More

Laid out beautifully like a real town, lots of variety and detail, only $7 admission. They give you an audio device in which you press the number of the building and it gives you a brief character narrative of its history. I found the narratives enjoyable. We were the only customers on a Tuesday afternoon, had the whole town to... More

My Wife & I found this village great for our hobby of taking photowalks. We had a very relaxing and unhurried day strolling the grounds. We came away with some very nice shots and an education into the early days of Manitowoc history. We will return soon!

This village is incredibly well done. An easy stroll takes one from an early cabin through a complete village. Each building is very well curated - extremely enjoyable.

We arrived midday during the week and no other guests were there. The person taking care of the admissions couldn't get the crdeit card equipment to work, so we looked around and decided this place wasn't good enough to stick around.

There are about 25 buildings, most open. The path is gravel and you probably have a half mile in total. We liked the buildings and love the setting. They provide an audio tour if you want. I don't think it's ever that busy, which is nice. On this holiday weekend there was only one other couple there while we walked... More
