I have to say that this museum is a bit outdated. That wouldn't be a surprise given their financial problems of the past. But that doesn't mean it isn't a great place for family fun and learning, or even an outing with just the kids. There is still so much to be learned here. Just because it was all the same stuff from when I was a kid, doesn't mean the information being shared isn't valuable. It just isn't as exciting as some of the newer Museums across the US. Definitely try it out at least once.

PROS: kids love seeing it for the first time
CONS: some exhibits outdated, and prices are somewhat high

Wow! The Imax is a not to be missed experience. No matter what movie we see, the quality and special effects are awesome. The theater is run well, even on very busy showings, there is plenty of room and everyone can see the screen, given how the chairs are laid out.
The prices are comparable with a regular movie, but the experience is far and beyond what you will find at a regular theater.

We really enjoyed visiting here with our children, the butterfly exibit was fun..they actually landed on us. The museum itself really hasnt changed in 20 years. There so are many educational things to see that it really fills up the whole day.
There is an IMAX there now and it is really worth paying the extra money.
There are several choices for fast food, although it is a little expensive, you dont have to run around downtown Milwaukee looking for food.
They have a large parking garage so there is always so place to park.

I haven't been to the museum in years, and won't be going back for many more. One of my favorites parts had been the Old Streets of Milwaukee - well there must have been a party the night before as the garbage cans were still full with plates and beer bottles. The floor was also covered in used napkins that had not been cleaned up as well.

It was gross and left a really bad impression on my family!!

This museum is good for young kids, but more geared to school-age kids and adults. They have a wide variety of exhibits, but the really interesting ones are separately priced, which makes visits fairly expensive. It is right next to Discovery World, and has an IMAX theater there, too (separate admission prices, of course) so it's worth it to go. Three floors of stuff, too, to the museum alone. And it's got awesome dinosaurs. :)

PROS: Exhibits
CONS: Cost

Watching an Imax movie is not the same as watching a regular movie. There is a HUGE difference -- you need to go to understand exactly what I'm saying. The screen is so large, it basically covers the entire room -- even the ceiling. Unfortunately, it's run by the Museum -- so most everything has an educational twist to it. I'd like to see some REAL movies here one day.

PROS: huge screen
CONS: movies aren't too entertaining

If you've never seen a movie in the Imax, you don't know what you're missing! It is literally like being there! I saw the one of the first ones they offered, the helicopter ride. It was like being in a helicopter! The only thing I would change is for them to have some more child-friendly movies... Imax's were offering "The Lion King" but this one did not have it.
