Milwaukee Public Museum
Take an adventure not limited by time or space at the Milwaukee Public Museum. Visit a traditional Native American powwow or watch real life butterflies flutter in our butterfly garden before you head back in time to walk the Streets of Old Milwaukee. Transport yourself further back and visit the Crossroads of Civilizations to see King Tut or even walk among the dinosaurs in the Third Planet! New digital and 3D features at the Dome Theater make it possible to get even closer to the action, whether you want to soar with the pterosaurs at a giant screen film or travel through the solar system with a planetarium show. From touring special exhibitions to our permanent displays, every trip to MPM is a unique journey to another world.
