Looking for ways to make learning come to life? Let us help you!

The Milwaukee Public Museum offers the most exciting field trip destination in the region, plus a plethora of great resources that will enrich both teachers’ and students’ learning experiences, both at the Museum and back in the classroom.


Teachers Visit for FREE*
Need to plan your next field trip? Curious about our latest updates to the exhibit halls? Simply show your school teacher ID to receive FREE access to the permanent exhibits plus one FREE Planetarium program in the Dome Theater.

Hall Pass Schools**
If ANY teacher from your school brings a field trip to the Museum, your school will automatically become a Hall Pass School for the following year. In addition to the free admission and free Planetarium program, you will receive one free film in the Dome Theater, 10% off in the gift shop and Cafe, and discounted parking in the MacArthur Square parking structure. Just show your school teacher ID at the ticketing windows and our associates will verify your school’s Hall Pass status.
