Success! Thanks for posting your review of Milwaukee Public Museum. You’ve done the world some good today.


Could use some new exhibits. Fairly expensive for admission especially if you want to see the special extra exhibits. It does have a wide variety of exhibits, though.

While the rest of the museum may be outdated or at least in need of refreshing, they have one of only a few butterfly exhibits in the tri-state area. That alone makes it worth the price of admission!

Milwaukee's Finest

I have been visiting that museum for over 60 years since I was a child and it has only gone through one change and it's called improvement. The educational challenges presented at our museum are absolutely outstanding particularly for the children, as well as, the adults.
