Can you visualize what downtown Lake Geneva might have looked like back in the late 19th century? Well, to get a really good idea, you might want to consider stepping into the Lake Geneva Museum and take a walk on Main Street. Complete with homes, stores and a school room, the museum provides an authentic look at the lifestyles of Lake Geneva during a simpler time. Stroll along and take in the authentic displays including a log cabin, blacksmith shop, dental work station, general store and a fire house complete with a hose wagon from 1890.
Learn about the boats, yachts and private mansions on the lake and how the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad was built to provide transportation from Chicago for wealthy individuals looking for a place to get away from big city life.
Located at 255 Mill Street, in what was once the 1929 Wisconsin Power & Light building, this museum is the product of volunteers spending countless hours to research and gather both items and information, making the museum a place to celebrate Lake Geneva’s history.
The Lake Geneva Museum is a Blue Star Museum and therefore welcomes Active Duty Military members and their families by offering free admission (up to 5 family members with a current ID) beginning Memorial Day, May 25th and running through Labor Day, September 7th. Active duty military also includes National Guard and Reserve members.
