This event has passed.

Port Washington Exploreum
@ 11:30 am - 7:30 pm

We will explore the maritime history of Port Washington, a beautiful Lake Michigan harbor town, where many immigrants from Luxembourg and Germany first set foot on Wisconsin soil. Our program includes a self-guided tour of the Exploreum, the town’s new maritime museum; a guided tour of the historic Light Station and Museum; and a visit of the Port Washington Historical Society to see their exhibits and hear a presentation about the town’s early settler families from German-speaking Europe. Afterward, we will drive to the Milwaukee Ale House in nearby Grafton for the annual business meeting and dinner, followed by a presentation by MKI Director Mark Louden on “Luxembourgers in Wisconsin.”
