The Milwaukee Public Museum is a great place to go- whether you are young or old. I have probably been going there since I was 4. I am now 20 and still love going. If you have kids- take be sure to take them into the candy shop (located in the Old Milwaukee exhibit). The butterfly room is also a must-see (especially for children), along with any other special exhibit (usually an extra fee on top of museum admission). Over the years, the MPM's special exhibits have included anything from real mummies from Egypt, reptiles from around the world (which included large snakes), to the famous Body Worlds exhibit, to the current exhibit- The Titanic. I have not been to The Titanic exhibit yet, but I have heard that they actually have a part of the ship on display, along with a huge chunk of ice that you can put your hand on, which mimics how cold the water actually was when the ship went down. I can't wait to go, as I am never disappointed with this museum.

It's still a great place to go - but I wish that they would get their act together financially. Everytime I read more about it in the paper - I am less inclined to visit the place.

If you want to know about Milwaukee history, please go to our museum. Walking down Old Milwaukee streets reminds me of my grandmother and her life in Milwaukee. I will go again and again just to walk those streets.

We become members of the Public Museum every year for a couple of reasons. It is a good cause and it is a great place to take children and visitors. The Museum periodically has events throughout the year, many run by volunteers which are fun and educational. Well worth spending the money. Not to mention the IMAX located within the Museum building too.

What a great way to spend a day, whether you are a local or out of town. The museum is always changing (new exhibits) but even the ones that have been there for 30 years are still fun and exciting. The Streets of Old Milwaukee is a must see, as is the butterfly exhibit, in which live butterflies will land on you and fly around you. It is a must see.
Parking is costly, try going on Sunday and park free at a meter.

This is really a neat museum in downtown Milwaukee. I'm not a big museum person in general, but they do a lot to keep the exhibits interesting, drawing the public in. The facility is quite large, so there's plenty to see. The staff are all nice, and it's a low-key facility where you can go and see the exhibits on your time.

Very good exhibits. The museum adds new exhibits on a fairly regular basis. The traveling exhibits are also interesting. Streets of Old Milwaukee is a must see.

My son LOVES going to the Milwaukee Public Museum. We have purchased a 1 year pass since we are there almost every weekend.

Mondays are FREE to Milwaukee County residents.

Educational & fun also!

If your looking for something fun to do on a rainy day... Go to the Milwaukee Public Museum
