Milwaukee – Frogs have filled the night with song since the dawn of the dinosaurs. They live almost everywhere, from tropical forests to frozen tundra and scorching deserts, and sport an amazing range of colors, shapes and sizes. Some are even deadly!

On October 6, The Milwaukee Public Museum (MPM) will offer visitors the ultimate ribbet-ing experience — the chance to get up close to more than 100 live frogs from all over the world in custom-designed habitats. This exhibition, created by Peeling Productions, is a hands-on, minds-on adventure where visitors will:

  • Get eye-level with live frogs from around the world.
  • Hear recorded frog calls.
  • Spin a zoetrope.
  • Perform a virtual frog dissection.
  • Learn about frog biology and the perils they face.
  • Discover the frog’s role in human cultures.

Admission to Frogs! is free for Museum members. Non-members can see the exhibit for $24.00 (Adults), $18.00 (Seniors 65+) and $16.00 (Youth 4-13). Children 3 and under are free. Tickets to Frogs! are timed-entry, offered at 30-minute intervals. Tickets can be purchased at or by phone at 414-278-2728. Frogs! will be at the Museum until January 6, 2019.
