We are big fans of Old World Wisconsin and are thrilled that they will be open again this summer. They are kicking things off with a Family Fun Drive Event from May 29-31! Unplug and experience firsthand the daily life of Wisconsin’s early immigrants. Old World Wisconsin includes 60 beautifully restored historic structures on over 600 acres of picturesque landscapes.
Family Fun Drive | Event in May 2021
Grab your friends and family, pile in your car, and head to Old World Wisconsin on May 29-31 for a drive-through tour of the site! Enjoy the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of Old World Wisconsin, all without leaving the comfort of your own vehicle.
The scenic tour (approximately 45 minutes in length) allows you to experience the site in a brand new way, including routes not accessible during the regular season. You’ll travel along a set route, exploring vignettes that capture the beauty of Old World Wisconsin in the early summer and experience the site’s picturesque architecture and landscapes. See lambs, calves, budding gardens, and other sights to spark family stories and make new memories.
While guests will remain in their vehicles for the majority of the tour, there will be select opportunities to hop out for some Instagram-able photo stops in our favorite locations! Guests can also pre-order a snack pack, filled with tasty treats.
You can purchase tickets here.
