Welcome to MPM’s DataBlitz!

The DataBlitz is an event where you, the museum visitor, get to help us by transcribing scientific data from our collections. Like MPM's BioBlitzes, we want to see how many natural history specimen records can be transcribed in a single day. Unlike the BioBlitz, however, where the public comes to see scientists in action, we are inviting you to do the action!

This event will take place on Saturday, October 22, 2016 from 11:00am-3:00pm.


Whatever your palate preference, food is both a means for survival and a gratifying experience we treat ourselves to. Join us for Indulgences and discover the science behind some of your most decadent cravings with hands-on experiences and delectable tastings, including food samples from our partners, globally themed appetizer stations and a cash bar. Play Slideshow Karaoke and learn how Milwaukeeans from generations past used food in their celebrations.
