Wisconsin History Makers Tour comes to Portage, Wisconsin

Wisconsin History Makers Tour comes to Portage

The Wisconsin History Makers Tour will bring history directly to local communities in every region of the state through pop-up exhibits, artifact displays, public programs, art installations, and other activities.

History Walk displays will travel throughout the state starting this summer to mid-2027. The tour is a collaboration with local history organizations, libraries, community groups, cultural venues, and other partners. Learn about the things that make up Wisconsin’s cultural identity through these pop-up history displays.

The South Central Region of the Wisconsin Council for Local History is the first stop on this venture. The Museum at the Portage, 804 MacFarlane Road, will host a display from June 1 through September/October on the lawn at the corner of MacFarlane Road and West Franklin Street. Stop by to walk the display anytime during daylight hours and stop into the museum to see new exhibits featured this summer, including the new sign exhibit.
