For more than 80 years the Kenosha Public Museum has been taking viewers to destinations around the world through its Travel Adventure Series. Professional filmmakers share their travel experiences through movies and interactive discussions, describing the art, music, architecture, culture and history from a first-person perspective. The series started in 1936 in the basement of the original Kenosha Historical and Art Museum (now the Dinosaur Discovery Museum) and were referred to as the Lamplighter Series.

A season pass may be purchased for $25 ($20 for seniors and Friends of the Museums members). Tickets available in advance or at the door. All seats unreserved.
