A must see venue in Oshkosh. Historical and beautiful. Traveling art collections set in a gorgeous mansion. Seasonal displays and a huge garden. Great setting for photo shoots. And the Christmas display is something you will remember forever .

Wonderful experience and performance with the guided tour of all the beautiful decorated trees and rooms. The children that did various ballet dances were awesome!

I just visited the Paine Art Center again to view the Maker and Muse Exhibit, and the Ron Harder Gem and Mineral Exhibit. If you can get to the Paine before the exhibit closes next weekend, please do! The Maker and Muse exhibit displays many intricate pieces of jewelry from the early years of the 20th century. The Paine is a perfect venue, and the jewelry is indescribably beautiful. Upstairs in the Gothic gallery is where the Ron Harder Gem and Mineral Exhibit is located. This is an incredible collection, definitely worth the trip upstairs. Within the last few years I have attended the "Dressing Downton" exhibit, the Tiffany exhibit, and this one. Thank you for having these amazing exhibits! I have truly enjoyed them. Also, please make time to stroll through the gardens, the colors of the plantings and arrangements of the flower beds are so well thought out and executed. The docent was well informed and very helpful. We had an infant with us, everyone was so helpful and kind! (Making sure the next generation appreciates fine jewelry as much as we do, LOL.)

Although the Paine is a must-see attraction, the current jewelry exhibition was extremely disappointing. It wasn't that the pieces weren't beautiful, but it was extremely poorly-lit. I'm not elderly and have excellent eyesight, so this was very frustrating. When I used the flashlight on my phone to see inside the cases better, I was told I couldn't. I paid $12 to get in and another $5 for the audio tour which was disjointed and marginally interesting.
