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.
