We connect visitors to the history of Wisconsin through exhibits on topics ranging from prehistory to the present.
Exhibits are open at the McAllister House Welcome Center and historic structures throughout the MCHS campus.


"What Makes us who we are"

Discover the unique stories of our past with our "What Makes Us Who We Are" exhibit inside the McAllister House Welcome Center. The exhibit takes you through Native American tribes, pioneer settlement, and innovative movements. The prized Flag of Company A greets visitors and shares its unique story of creation, war, and coming home. An interactive Civil War tent also features hands-on learning opportunities for our young visitors.
