I've been going to Lake Geneva for years but never knew much about the history of the area. The museum really is set up well to tell the story.

This small building packs in lots of history. With its cobblestone walks and old store fronts its fun and entertaining for all ages. The affordable ticket price with kids free, makes it a nice alternative to the beach on a rainy day.

A small museum in the heart of downtown, this place is a time machine into the past. A replica street of yesteryear, you get the feel of life from Indian huts in 1830 to home life in the 1880's and 1920's. Individual businesses and homes...More
