Worth the 1 hour drive from Milwaukee--even in September
Sep 2021
About 1 hour away from Milwaukee---and worth the drive---the home is very special and well done----but to hear the owners never actually ended up living there was surprising---the various gardens were beautiful even with us being there middle September--I can't imagine it in the spring----even in September there was plenty of color--well worth the $12 per person

Lovely Afternoon Visit!
May 2021 • Couples
What a lovely place! We visited to late for the tulip show, but is still a wonderful walk. There are formal gardens, and tucked away paths—whimsical and elegant at the same time. I really enjoyed the sculptures!

Great Sunday Afternoon Stroll
May 2021
Just spent another great afternoon at the Paine Art Center and Gardens. Admission was free for Mother's Day, so my husband and I decided to browse the gardens after brunch. The gardens are absolutely beautiful, and many families were there enjoying a Sunday afternoon stroll. The crabapple trees and the tulips were especially grand.

If you go, don't miss the garden kaleidoscope. It is a big planter you can spin and view through several eyepieces. When the sun hits the flowers it is visually breathtaking!

Admission to the Art Center itself was also free, but the line was way too long for our patience! Next time. . .

Awesome experience

Love the Nutcracker Display during the Christmas season. This year shared it with my granddaughters that loved going there too. The spring flower gardens are very beautiful too. Truly special place to visit.

Mansion Gets 5 Stars...
Aug 2020
The mansion was awesome; the gardens were so so. The story of the families was fascinating. The gardens were okay; we always hope to see a lot of flowers, which this garden wound up not having.

Great Alphonse Mucha Art Nouveau show!!
Jun 2020 • Friends
What a great show! Great job with limited people and masks keeping things safe! The Art Nouveau show was amazing! Only $4.50 per person. They are also doing the Gnome Hunt which is fun for families.

Rooms of Blooms
Mar 2020 • Couples
A truly beautiful place to visit. We have been here many times over the years and have enjoyed traveling exhibits such as Chihully Glass and Downton Abbey. Also there are recurring events like Rooms of Blooms, the annual plant sale and the Nutcracker.

All of these are set in the beautiful and historic Paine mansion. There are gardens, art collections and astounding architecture to enjoy.

This is a must see and once is not enough!

A must see venue in Oshkosh. Historical and beautiful. Traveling art collections set in a gorgeous mansion. Seasonal displays and a huge garden. Great setting for photo shoots. And the Christmas display is something you will remember forever .
