The oshkosh public museum is well worth the price of admission, which is much less than the Paine Art Center. Much to see, and a quaint little gift shop too

So much to see and do! Interactive fun, learning while playing. Especially enjoyed the Apostle Clock. Kids loved the "Attic". Parking was easy, prices reasonable and a couple hours of fun!

We decided to check out this beautiful structure. There was a section being renovated, due to open in 2017. We watched the apostle clock strike 12 noon, very interesting! Another historical home and building.

Across the street from the Paine Art house. This museum has a very old apostles clock. Many items are rotated in and out. Shows the days of the lumber and American Indian history in area. Very good museum for a small unit.

Check out the Oshkosh Public Museum! Housed in a lumber barren's home the woodwork alone is a marvel. The exhibits are always top notch as well and the history of Oshkosh and the Fox River Valley is stellar!

Love this place. Love that they change the exhibits often. Just dislike that its small. Good for the whole family.

Went for the dinosaur exhibit, was not very interesting at all, after all they hype and advertising, disappointing for the little ones- 3 yrs old. Great old clock that chimes on the hour.
