We had just enough time to take a self-guided tour of the historic West Bend Court House Museum. For adults admission is $5.00 each. You can tour both the Court House and the former Jail for $7.00 each. It is just beautiful inside as it is outside. This is the view from the staircase in the lobby.
There are MANY exhibits, and more are in the works! Here is an old technology exhibit.
Dental office display.
West Bend Bank Teller Booth.
Even a trapper and Native American display. There is a Wigwam too!
Military Room on the main floor.
The former courtroom is open for viewing too, and it can be reserved for events.
The three windows above the judge’s desk are actually stained glass.
There is also a beautiful doll house exhibit.
That about concludes our tour, don’t forget to stop in the gift shop for a souvenir on the main floor.
There is Veteran’s memorial on the grounds outside also.
We had a great visit here, well worth the time for both tours. Next time we will see the jail next door. West Bend is a city rich in history, a great place to visit!
