Hands-On History: Wisconsin 101

Explore the history of Wisconsin from the end of the last Ice age to the creation of the state. Discover the early history of the First Peoples of Wisconsin; encounter the Fur Trade; dig through our lead mining past; and learn the lore of the lumberjacks as we burrow into Badger history through hands-on exploration of images and artifacts from our collections.    

Hands-On History brings the objects of the past directly to Wisconsin's students through hour-long, interactive sessions. Engaging with the objects in much the same way as historians and archaeologists do, students draw conclusions on their own by asking these 3 main questions:

  •What can we learn from objects?

 •What questions do we ask?

 •How do objects help to tell the story of the past?
