From the Executive Director
The continuous interaction between people and the land generates the special character that is the spirit of a community. With each exhibit and educational program at Racine Heritage Museum, we strive to capture that spirit for a moment, and share something of our unique heritage of exploration and discovery, of innovation and invention, of entrepreneurship, of craftsmanship, and of diversity - the local stories and global impact of Racine's people and their products.
Racine Heritage Museum is home to over 200,000 artifacts and an extensive archival collection documenting our area's economic and cultural history. Our exhibit and educational program reflect our commitment to object-centered learning, and to exploring our area's historic and emergent technologies in their local cultural and worldwide contexts.
We invite you to join the over 30,000 annual visitors to Racine Heritage Museum, and take advantage of our unique exhibit environment, extensive research resources, and quality educational opportunities.
