Topic: Oshkosh on the Home Front During WWI
After the United States entered World War One in 1917, calls to support the war effort quickly spread across the county. By reading closely into the Oshkosh Daily Northwestern’s coverage of home front activities in Oshkosh, this presentation examines the different ways the city and its people responded to the war.
The Nostalgia Awakens
Vintage Star Wars™ Toy Display
January 24 - June 20, 2021
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.

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!
We are offering three cemetery tours at Riverside Cemetery May-July.
