Wisconsin’s settlers filled their lives with simple pleasures and useful skills. Join museum crafters and farmers for a celebration of Wisconsin’s rich folk life traditions! Discover a heritage craft, such as spinning and knitting. Explore heritage farm skills, such as wood-stove cooking and antique machinery. Watch specialty craftsmen such as blacksmiths and broom makers create their wares. Kitchens, barn yards, and workshops across the museum will bustle with activities and fun.
The Heritage Skills Expo is targeted to middle and high school students. As high schoolers get ready to enter the workforce or go to college, it is important to look back at the historical "careers" that paved the way for modern jobs.
