The Oshkosh Public Museum is all about discovery. Join other children ages 6-12 who have siblings with disabilities to discover the challenges and joys we uniquely share as Sibs…and HAVE FUN EXPLORING THE MUSEUM!
Through our collections and exhibitions, we present stories about this place called Oshkosh. The Museum is the perfect place to find inspiration in objects, images, and information that interests you. With almost 300,000 objects in our collections, from quilts to decoys to clothing and more, you are sure to discover some awesome artifact on view. The Museum is the ideal place to connect with the community and its past, and to find out about people or meet friends. If you are searching for your ancestors, the Museum archives holds over 70,000 historic photographs, along with film, letters, and diaries.
Come join us to explore the environment as Spring finds nature waking up after a long winter. Learn about the importance of local wetlands; find fish, frongs, turtles, and all kinds of hands-on activities for kids.
