New World War I Exhibit
The Chudnow Museum holds dozens of original world war one posters and plenty of additional items pertaining to the Great War. There is a signed statement from area school children when the war was over. Rationing recipes and coupons needed to purchase sugar. Trench art, sheet music and more are on display or can be heard. Marquette University's Dr. Ruff spoke about the home front during the war and the Argonne Offensive during the April 2nd opening.

Green River St. Patrick's Day Event
On March 18th and 19th our visitors enjoyed Free Floats thanks to Green River distributor WIT Beverage. Children of all ages enjoyed a special treat after their visit. The Lime soda goes together well with Vanilla ice cream!
School Groups Visit the Chudnow Museum
This Spring saw several area schools visit the museum as part of their curriculum. Whether studying American history of the early 20th century or learning about Wisconsin history, the museum brings the stories to life with three dimensional artifacts.
Concordia University Theater Loan
Mequon's Concordia University is putting on an April production of "A Raisin in the Sun" and has borrowed a few artifacts from the Chudnow Museum to assist in the stage set. "The story tells of a black family's experiences in the Washington Park Subdivision of Chicago's Woodlawn neighborhood as they attempt to "better" themselves with an insurance payout following the death of the father." https://www.cuw.edu/life/finearts/theater/
Visit From Dr. Eisenberg's Family
The Chudnow Museum building was once the home and home clinic of Dr. Joseph J. Eisenberg. Members of his family have visited us several times and bring more of the late Doctor's artifacts to add to our exhibit! It is always a treat to talk with them and hear the first hand accounts of their father and this building back 70 or 80 years ago.
Off-Site Display of Gas Stoves - Zimmerman Architectural Studios
The Chudnow Museum has an off-site exhibit at the Zimmerman Architectural Studios building, the former City Lights Gas facility. It includes this beautiful, nearly unused, 1940 Roper stove. The stove is a fairly recent donation to the Museum from a Milwaukee family.
