Milwaukee Museum Week

Discovery World and 16 other museums in the Milwaukee area will be celebrating MKE Museum Week!

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.

A full list of events taking place in cultural institutions throughout Milwaukee can be found on MKEMuseumWeek.org.
