I always loved this museum. When I was young it had a fantastic bird collection that is now gone possibly due to diseases. Public Museums should be free of charge to visit. I don't like it that they now charge admission.

Used to visit it every year as a child and returned there as an adult to go through it again and was amazed at what a great museum this is! My favorite is the Apostle Clock, beautiful to watch!

You'll only need about an hour to visit the Oshkosh Public Museum -- unless they happen to be hosting one of the superb visiting exhibits that they often bring to town. Everyday highlights include a one-of-a-kind handcrafted "Apostles Clock" and a very large diorama of...More

The museum is housed in the former home of an Oshkosh resident. The architecture of the home, interior and exterior, is under emphasized as part of the museum. Be sure and look carefully at the woodwork and flooring. But the real reason for going is...More

We enjoyed the museum. It has many exhibits that appeal to adults as well as children. I would visit again if there was a traveling exhibit I wanted to check out :)
