|The Kenosha Public Museum is a very modern museum with amazing views of Lake Michigan|
|It's a brand new facility and was quite impressive|
The Field Station also features many other hands-on activities for kids to explore such as arts & crafts, touching various dinosaur fossils, and plenty of reading areas. The gallery was surrounded by built-in drawer units that kids could open themselves and explore various topics & learning toys, such as dinosaurs (each labeled with the name of the dino the toy represented). Overall this was probably the best children's gallery I have visited in a natural history museum!

|Learning about Native American life in Wisconsin|
|Having fun while learning about living green|
|The Civil War Museum uses modern life-size exhibits|
|Actual towns are re-created similar to what I find at many big city museums|
|There was even a train car...you'd sit next to each passenger and hear their story|
Overall I have to say I was quite surprised by the quality of Kenosha's museums! Kenosha is by no means a metropolis (Wikipedia calls it a "bedroom community") yet it has several museums that are of the quality I would expect of a big city. And not only are they of that high quality, they have no crowds (yea!) & come with a very family-friendly atmosphere!
