Our Work is inspired by the Mission of the Wisconsin Historical Society to collect, preserve, and share Wisconsin’s stories; and the Vision of Old World Wisconsin to set the standard for guest experiences that are engaging, enriching, authentic, relevant, and fun.
Experience Facilitators encourage and support guests in connecting to history in new and hands-on ways. They are storytellers, encouraging friends, and champions of the curiosity and exploration that make history come alive at Old World Wisconsin. As part of the Guest Experience team, they work collaboratively to create experiences that are engaging, enriching, authentic and relevant to over 68,000 guests each year.
Each day Facilitators work face to face with guests – in both one on one and group settings. They demonstrate daily life in historic immigrant homes, businesses, and farms which can include cooking, cleaning, crafts, chores, and gardening. In this role, Facilitators are always ensuring that guests can share in the experiences, learning about the past (and themselves!). Facilitators are also stewards of the buildings and collections of the Wisconsin Historical Society, helping with daily cleaning and upkeep to ensure that we are able to share Wisconsin’s stories well into the future.
