Live virtual tours are available

We are offering online tours for your enjoyment from the convenience and safety of your home. A docent will guide you through the brand-new visitor center exhibit and the Agency House itself. Because the tour is live, reservations must be made a minimum of 2 business days in advance.

About Our Tours

We are one of Wisconsin's longest-running museums, having opened to the public in 1932. We strive to provide quality tours that are both informative and enjoyable. All tours are docent-guided. A typical tour lasts approximately an hour, although tour lengths and topics can be adjusted to suit your needs and interests, so please just ask!

Joint tickets are available for admission to both the Historic Indian Agency House and Fort Winnebago Surgeon's Quarters, which is located just 1.5 miles from the Historic Indian Agency House along Highway 33.

​We look forward to your visit.  Thank you for your interest in the Agency House!

Group Tours (Note: Large group tours available ONLINE ONLY during pandemic)

Please contact us for more information and to schedule a tour for your school group, summer camp, scout troop, or other large groups. We will work with you to plan your special day with us.

Directions

The Historic Indian Agency House is located just 2 miles northeast of downtown Portage, Wisconsin, on the banks of the Portage Canal, just off Highway 33. From Highway 33, turn north onto East Albert Street, and take an immediate right onto Agency House Road. We are located at the end of the road. Please begin your visit in the visitor center, which is the building closest to the parking lot.

Visitor parking, located north of the visitor center, is always free at the Agency House. We have space for RVs, motor coaches, buses, and trailers.
