Meet the Watson Family

Sully and Susanna Watson took their family from the oppressive conditions of ante-bellum Virginia in 1834 and, after several years in Ohio, arrived in Milwaukee in 1850. Through skilled labor and business entrepreneurship, the couple played a vital role in establishing Milwaukee’s black middle class.

MPM Fossil Challenge

It looks like a fossil, right? Don’t be so sure! There are a lot of things out there that look like fossils but aren’t. And what is a fossil anyway? This activity challenges visitors to examine several different objects from the Museum’s collections and correctly identify them as either fossils, or something else entirely.
