Check Out Milwaukee Museum Week
Unique new partnership of 17 groups showcases city's wide range of cultural offerings.
A broad partnership between many of the city’s leading cultural institutions kicks off January 21st as part of the inaugural Milwaukee Museum Week.
Seventeen museums and historical institutions will offer a wide variety of special offers including free or reduced admission, extended hours and special programming. The week runs from Monday, January 21st through Sunday, January 27th.
Participating institutions range from big groups like Discovery World and Milwaukee Art Museum on the lakefront to smaller and off-the-beaten-path organizations like the Chudnow Museum of Yesteryear and Wisconsin Black Historical Society
The first-time event started as a result of conversations between many of the city’s museum directors. According to a release: “Museum Week is an opportunity to call attention to Milwaukee’s wonderful array of museums, to promote our shared missions as well as our distinctive focuses, and to ignite new interest from the public. The shared hope is to spur awareness and patronage of these community treasures and to ultimately celebrate what this segment of our community means to education, inspiration and quality of life.”
