History Museum At The Castle
Inside the walls of The History Museum, the past comes alive through the stories, photographs and artifacts of people of the Fox Valley. Our mission is to inspire appreciation for the rich history of the Fox River Valley area communities through the collections, exhibits and education at The History Museum at the Castle. Owned and operated by the Outagamie County Historical Society, The History Museum holds the collections representing the history of the Fox Valley dating back to 1840s.
It was nice for a small museum. The aka Houdini exhibit was fun, but about half of the interactive displays were broken. I would consider coming back if there was a temporary exhibit that intrigued me.
For a small local museum this place was pretty cool. The building itself is super awesome!! They had 4 exhibits, and 3 of those were a very good size, and mx of information, artifacts, with a little bit of interactive parts. The toy exhibit was not worth walking into, but the other 3 were super cool! I would visit again, after the changing exhibit flipped. Not a great place for very young children due to the lac of interactive opportunities. Great price, and friendly staff. Stairs between floors, and I am unsure if an elevator is available.
It was an amazing experience! The Hudni part was awsome, loved it because you could interact with some of it
The exhibit for the Outagamie County Mental Health Center and the homeless exhibit, regardless of what others say, are not for kids. If you can get past the inappropriate content and scary (to kids) black and white images from the asylum, you'll find a few facts scattered in with speculation and opinion. Both exhibits were thin on education and give no call to action to do anything about the serious homeless and mental health issues facing our idyllic small city. While the items and displays are done in a quality manner, a more worthwhile exhibit would be celebrating the contributions of artists, creators, city pioneers and leaders of industry. One consolation was the toy exhibit, albeit small.
Nice way to kill an hour or so. The exhibits are nicely done
