Celebrate St. Nick’s Day at MPM for FREE on
Kohl’s Thank You Thursday
Milwaukee—Whether you were naughty or nice this year, visitors to the Milwaukee Public Museum (MPM) on Thursday, December 6 will get a treat -- free admission.
Thanks to MPM’s partnership with Kohl’s Cares, the Museum offers free admission to permanent exhibits and one Planetarium program on the first Thursday of every month.
Continue the holiday joy after opening up your stocking with a stroll through Deck the Streets, the decorated Streets of Old Milwaukee and European Village exhibits. Go back in time and visit with the dinosaurs or King Tut. MPM volunteers will also be on the floors to let you hold a hissing cockroach and tell you more about our exhibits and artifacts.
Kohl’s Thank You Thursday is also the perfect time to visit Frogs!, our latest traveling exhibit, for a discounted price. See real live frogs (you can even watch them being fed at 11 a.m.) for $6 (adults) or $4 (seniors 65+ and youth 4-13). Children 3 and under receive free admission to Frogs!
