Safety Measures and Guidelines
The Paine has implemented new safety and cleaning protocols to address the risk of the coronavirus. All staff wear face masks and frequently touched surfaces are routinely disinfected. In addition, we request that all guests wear a face mask or covering and maintain social distance from visitors not in your group. If you are unable to wear a mask, we ask that you delay your visit until the risk of the pandemic recedes. We encourage you to review all of our safety guidelines before visiting.
The Paine Art Center and Gardens is located at 1410 Algoma Boulevard, Oshkosh, WI 54901.
Visitors may park in a new parking lot on Algoma Boulevard located next to the Paine mansion, which offers accessible parking spaces and a drop off area near the entrance gate. Visitors may also park along the street on Algoma Boulevard and Congress Avenue. An overflow parking lot is available on Elmwood Avenue.
The history of the Paine is a fascinating story, and now you can learn about the origins and facets of the estate by watching an online video. Offered to visitors as an orientation, this 13-minute video produced by Wisconsin Public Television is also an excellent overview for anyone who is intrigued or enamored by the Paine.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Paine is currently not offering guided tours. Guided tours of the mansion (year-round) and gardens (May through October) are available by appointment. To ensure adequate time to see all the spectacular sights at the Paine, please plan to spend one to two hours with us. To arrange a tour for your group, please fill out a Group Tour Inquiry below.
