Upcoming Exhibition

The Nostalgia Awakens
Vintage Star Wars™ Toy Display

When Star Wars™ hit the movie theaters in 1977, it instantly became a box office smash, especially with children.  Kids wanted to bring the action home from the theater with them with their favorite heroes, villains, creatures, and spaceships in miniature sizes on the toy shelves.

Reservations required! Reserve and prepay for the date and time that works for you, allowing you easy check-in when you arrive and safety precautions for the ongoing pandemic. Your ticket includes the entire Museum!

Permanent Exhibition

Titanic: The Wisconsin Connection
July 21 - October 13, 2021

This summer the Oshkosh Public Museum will unveil a unique exhibition, Titanic: The Wisconsin Connection. Over two years in the making, this exceptional exhibition is based on in-depth research of Wisconsin passengers, conducted by Museum staff and researchers from Experiential Media Group. There were over fifty people on the great ship, in all classes, who were either from Wisconsin or were journeying to the state as immigrants.  This exhibition tells the story of twenty of those passengers and is being developed specifically for the Oshkosh Public Museum.

Tickets will go on sale in late June!
