Milwaukee Museum Mile Celebrates Its 7th Year On Mother’s Day

Milwaukee – The Seventh Annual Milwaukee Museum Mile Day celebration will take place on Mother’s Day Sunday, May 13, 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.  On this day, all five locations will offer free or reduced admission. Each museum will offer free docent-led tours and light refreshments – including champagne at several locations. Free activities for children will also be available. A free, continuous shuttle bus will be available for travel between locations. This is a great way to spend time with the family on Mother’s Day.

Participants are welcome to park at museum locations where parking is available or utilize street parking. Due to construction, parking is unavailable at Saint John’s On The Lake this year. Parking is available in the county parking lot in Lake Park at Newberry and Lake Drive, one block North of the North Point Lighthouse, and along Wahl Avenue in front of the lighthouse.

Walking and bicycling to the event are also encouraged.

About the Museums on the Milwaukee Museum Mile

Five small and medium sized arts and culture museums, located on Milwaukee’s historic East Side along the Lake Michigan shoreline, have created the Milwaukee Museum Mile. This joint effort among the Jewish Museum Milwaukee, The Charles Allis Art Museum, Museum of Wisconsin Art at Saint John’s On The Lake, The Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum, and the North Point Lighthouse at Lake Park, creates a simple and more affordable way for visitors to access and enjoy multiple museum experiences, while promoting the area as a destination to Milwaukee residents and visitors to our city. The museums are located in close proximity to one another, along N. Prospect Avenue and on N. Wahl and N. Terrace Avenues, creating a comfortable stroll for visitors, who can choose the sites most interesting to them and divide their time as they prefer.

    A great event! I’ve seen Pat Kroth’s quilts at St. John’s but none of the other shows so far, and I can’t wait to visit!
