Milwaukee Public Museum Reopening to the Public in March 2021


The Milwaukee Public Museum to Reopen to Visitors in March 2021

One of our favorite local attractions and activities, the Milwaukee Public Museum, will be reopening its doors to visitors starting on March 4, 2021! We are so excited to get back into the Milwaukee Public Museum to visit the T-Rex, the streets of Milwaukee, and all of our favorite exhibits. In fact, we’ve even got a list of some of the hidden gems for you to find during your visit to the MPM!

Of course, your visit will still look different than it has in the past in order to keep visitors and staff healthy and safe, so be sure to review the new protocols for buying tickets, timed entry, and amended access to the exhibits and public spaces. Please keep in mind that mask-wearing is mandatory at the Milwaukee Public Museum.

Not quite ready to head back to MPM in person? Be sure to check out the Community of Curiosity, the virtual programming released every month that presents videos, activities, and information about one of the exhibits. In March, this exciting option will feature dinosaur-themed programming to enjoy before, during, or after your visit, and check back for new resources every month!
