We are cautiously happy to announce we have completed our preparations for re-opening the museum! We are planning to re-open to the general public on Monday, July 13 at 10:00 AM. We will run our normal operating hours which you can find posted at the bottom of our Home Page. We have developed a plan that is based on opening recommendations from the Wisconsin Department of Health, CDC, WEDC and numerous museum organizations such as the American Alliance of Museums. We have also followed several large museum plans that speak to specific museum issues with re-opening.

Did you know that cheese is one of the C’s that made Sheboygan County famous? In fact, Plymouth is the Cheese Capital of the world!

To celebrate that special C, we’ve hidden cheese wedges throughout the Museum and historical buildings for you to find! The staff had fun hiding these cute little pieces of cheese in some surprising and amusing places! Can you find them all?
