AES Kenosha Museum Field Trip
We will carpool at the Park & Ride and plan to arrive at the Kenosha Public Museum at Noon (5500 First Avenue). Those who do not want to meet in Madison can meet the group at the museum but please let us know of your plans. Bring a brown bag lunch and snacks and plan to do a lot of walking. This will be a self-guided tour of up to three separate museums (self-guided tour booklets are $3 for each museum). We will do them in the following order:
Kenosha Public Museum: A natural sciences and fine and decorative arts museum established in 1933. Its permanent exhibit features "The Wisconsin Story," an immersive multi-disciplinary experience that highlights "change in climate, the development of a variety of ecosystems, the evolution of plants and animals, and the life of Native Americans. Exhibits include coral reefs and primitive monsters of the deep, the Ice Age and the eventual melting of glaciers, the Schaefer mammoth dig, the Hebior mammoth replica, and the story of Native Americans of Wisconsin." Allow 1 hour.
Civil War Museum: Located in the same building, the Civil War Museum uses state-of-the-art museum technology, life-size dioramas and interactive engaging exhibits to explore the social, political and economic influences that contributed to the Civil War, with an emphasis on the links between the home front and the battle front. Allow 1 hour.
Dinosaur Discovery Museum: This nearby museum (5608 10th Avenue, a $1 streetcar ride is available) explores the link between birds and meat-eating dinosaurs, one of the most complete known fossil records. Allow ½ hour.
