The National Historic Cheesemaking Museum is located at the southern gateway to Wisconsin, just a few miles north of the Illinois/Wisconsin line. The staff eagerly awaits your visit to tell you the story of early cheesemaking which earned Monroe the title of the "Cheese Capital of the USA." During your visit, step inside the century old Imobersteg Cheese Factory to witness how cheese was made over a century ago. Each year on the second Saturday of June, join Master Cheesemakers and retired cheesemakers as they make a wheel of Swiss cheese, right before your eyes. Enjoy a video showing the cheesemaking process in today's cheese factories.
