A historic estate flourishing with art, gardens, and inspiration.
The Paine Art Center and Gardens is an English-inspired estate in a beautiful Wisconsin setting. Construction of the Paine began in 1925 and did not finish until 1948 when it finally opened to the public. Today, the historic Paine property holds a collection of more than a thousand artworks, including paintings, sculptures, furnishings and decorative objects. The entire estate features 20 garden areas, which have been designed to create outdoor “rooms” showcasing a wide variety of plants.
Go on a Gnome Hunt
Families are invited to visit the Paine and help us to monitor the whereabouts of this curious band of gnomes. The gnomes can be seen any time you visit the Paine mansion and gardens. The Paine estate is open to the public by reservation only, and admission is currently 50% off.
