Located in the heart of downtown Milwaukee and home to a 212-seat lecture hall, three floors of iconic exhibits, and meeting spaces like the Bert L. and Patricia S. Steigleder Special Exhibits Gallery, the Milwaukee Public Museum can comfortably accommodate up to 3,500 guests.
Built-in entertainment and on-site coordination services maximize this venue's value. The Museum's unique add-on experiences include special screenings in the Daniel M.
