A scene at Old World Wisconsin in Eagle

MADISON, Wis. -

The wait is almost over, history buffs. Old World Wisconsin is set to re-open for the season this weekend.

The historical site is set to open its doors to the general public on Saturday. The site will be open every weekend in May and resume daily hours on Memorial Day.

The site has planned a number of programs and activities for each May weekend, including "Spring into the Past" events that allow visitors to try 19th-century chores, garden strolls and a Mother's Day brunch buffet.

Old World Wisconsin features dozens of historic buildings relocated from around the state. The site is located outside Eagle in southeastern Wisconsin.
