School Tours

Per Wisconsin Emergency Order #28 Safer at Home, Section 4a, all Schools are closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. We will miss seeing the students and teachers, and we hope to see all of you back in 2021 for our annual school tours!

The Barron County Historical Society would like to take this opportunity to invite your school to participate in our 48th Annual School Tour/End of the Year Field Trip Program.

This year, our tours will take place on May 14, 15, 19, 21, 22, 28, and 29. To reserve your tour, please print, complete, and return the School Tour Form at your earliest convenience.


Picnic tables are available, if your group wants to bring a sack lunch. 


If your group would like to take part in a scavenger hunt, play an invigorating game of vintage baseball, or have exclusive use of the one-room school house for an hour, just let us know what you have in mind and we’ll do our best to accommodate.


Upon arrival, your school will be greeted at the gate, guided to the Pavilion for orientation and then divided into touring groups of eight to ten students. Each group must have an adult chaperone or teacher accompanying them.

Students are encouraged to come dressed in period costumes.  The museum is offering a small prize to any student who comes in 1880s garb.  Both students and the volunteers really enjoy this.  Students can also make and purchase jump ropes for $1.00.


Touring the museum grounds, walking back through history, chatting with our volunteers and enjoying a picnic lunch under the pines is a great way to spend the day with your class.


After your visit, students will receive a Complimentary Pass to return to the Museum at a future date.

No pets are allowed on the Museum grounds, with the exception of service animals.

We are a member of Blue Star Museums. Go to for more information.
