Racine, WI   April 9, 2015  -  RAM's Wustum Museum is one of the most beautiful locations in Southeastern Wisconsin to host a formal event. Located at 2519 Northwestern Avenue, Racine on 13 acres of park and a one-acre formal garden, Wustum features a setting designed by famed Wisconsin landscape architect Alfred Boerner. The former Wustum home, an 1856 Italianate-style farmhouse that originally housed the museum's permanent collection, sits at the heart of the campus. This elegant and exceptional environment is the centerpiece for creating an everlasting memory for the wedding party and guests.
