MISSION: To preserve objects significant to the development and culture of Mukwonago and the surrounding areas and serve as a resource for educating the public about local history. MUSEUM FEATURES HOUSE MUSEUM: Sewall Andrew’s 3-bedroom brick home decorated in a Victorian theme filled with furniture and items a house in the mid-1800’s would contain. NATIVE AMERICAN COLLECTIONS: North American tribe artifacts including the Grutzmacher Collection containing prehistoric stone items; the Schoewe Collection featuring Wisconsin tribe beadwork, moccasins, bowls, etc.; and the Kirkby Collection showcasing Canadian tribe fur trade era artifacts. http://www.mukwonagomuseum.org/about/american-indian-collections/ THE TRADING POST: Representative of Sewall’s General Store filled with antique food containers, outdoor implements and other items used by early settlers in everyday life and housing the museum’s gift shop. BEAUTIFUL GARDENS: Stunning grounds and gardens, a UW-Extension Master Gardener site featuring the Medicine Wheel Garden’s circle of life and heirloom gardens filled with era-appropriate flowers and foliage. MUSEUM HISTORY Located in the heart of downtown Mukwonago, Wisconsin, the Mukwonago Museum was first established in 1967, when the Red Brick House was purchased with funds left by Mr. Arthur Grutzmacher. Built in 1842 by original Mukwonago settler Sewall Andrews, the home has been restored to a lovely Victorian house, reminiscent of the post-Civil War period with an attached cedar-lined, converted sheep barn housing an extensive, unique collection of Native American artifacts from North American tribes. For 40 years, community volunteers have staffed the museum, updated rooms, and educated guests to impart a love for history to all who visit this unique Mukwonago attraction. EVENTS, ACTIVITIES, EXHIBITS Past events and activities include Ice Cream Socials; Fall Fest and Midnight Magic tours; Children’s Book Club; and Quilt Show participation. The Exhibit booths in the Welcome Room change annually and feature artifacts from the museum’s archives and loaned by museum. The 2014 theme is “Wiigwas – the Gift of Birch” and the 125-year anniversary of the Mukwonago Chief. Past topics include Early Settlers; modern-day items and their historical ancestors; Women’s Suffrage Movement; Native American artifacts; Mukwonago’s impact on the Civil War, WWI and WWII WAYS TO SUPPORT US You can help the museum by becoming a member; volunteering to clean, garden, plan and staff events; giving tours; participating in our events and encouraging friends and family to take a tour!
