Give the gift of SAFETY and FUN this year with our many online experiences each month that are completely FREE to Museum members.

With the rising number of COVID-19 cases in our community, the City of Milwaukee issued Public Health Order 4.2, increasing restrictions to stop the spread. In compliance with this Order, MPM has temporarily closed its doors, but we’re committed to being there for you digitally!

  • Virtual Stargazing - Take a live virtual tour of the current night sky with Daniel M. Soref Planetarium Director Bob Bonadurer! In this 45-minute program, you'll explore spectacular sights as you journey from sunset to sunrise. Don’t forget, your sky requests are welcome! 
  • Virtual Dinosaur Hunt – Join MPM Educators on a trip back in time to the Mesozoic Era, where you’ll learn all about dinosaurs and the scientists who study them.
  • Virtual Colossal Fossils – Learn about Tyrannosaurus rex with the experts at Colossal Fossils in Wausau, Wisconsin, all from the comfort of your home.
  • Virtual Ugly Ornament Contest – Do you have the ugliest ornament? Show us for a chance to win great prizes!
When times are healthier, and it is safe to do so, you will receive the following onsite:
  • Free general admission to the Milwaukee Public Museum
  • Free admission to the Daniel M. Soref Planetarium
  • Free members-only events
  • Free admission to special exhibitions
