Second Annual Milwaukee Museum Week Set for Jan. 18-26
Events and programs planned for all ages and interests
Milwaukee – The second annual Milwaukee Museum Week takes place Jan. 18-26 with fun events, interesting programs and special experiences to participate in at seventeen Milwaukee museums. This special week has been created to bring to light the meaningful impact these museums have for our residents, tourism and the economy, and to forming Milwaukee’s well-rounded cultural community. More than a hundred programs or events will be offered during the week and people are encouraged to support their local museums by participating.
In its first year, Milwaukee Museum Week was a success and welcomed thousands of people to participating museums. Whether for events, programs, or just to see the museum for the first time or on a repeat visit, Milwaukeeans showed their support for Milwaukee’s museums. New this year, each museum will offer at least one lunch-time program that is free to attend in addition to the array of events that will happen throughout the week. Look for behind-the scenes tours, curator’s talks, hands-on programs and more.
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.
The public can expect events and programs such as behind-the-scene tours, lectures, specialty tours only offered during Museum Week, children’s programming, and some museums are offering reduced or free admission on select days. A full list of events can be found on MKEMuseumWeek.org.
