The Milwaukee Public Museum and Kohl’s 
Invite You To Celebrate Winter

MILWAUKEE, Wisc. (January 21, 2021)—Though the Milwaukee Public Museum’s doors are still closed due to the City of Milwaukee’s Health Order 4.2, thanks to their partnership with Kohl’s, MPM continues to offer free programming, which would have been onsite at Kohl’s Thank You Thursday, virtually through MPM’s Community of Curiosity. 

More than 400,000 users have logged on, visited our social media, signed up for weekly activities or watched Community of Curiosity videos thanks to support from Kohl’s. Past topics have included our Wisconsin Woodlands, Costa Rican Rainforest and European Village exhibits along with indoor and outdoor nature and culture activities, videos and reading recommendations – we even have some adult trivia for those of you missing your trivia nights. These activities have been used by Wisconsinites looking to engage their students, families and lifelong learners looking for something new to discover. 

Head over to and find out why winter is one of the most joyful seasons. Whether you decide to build an igloo indoors or take a wintery nature walk outdoors, we’re guaranteeing you’ll have a good time. For those of you who really love adventure, be sure to download our sky map and bundle up before heading outside to see some great star-sights (don’t worry, we’ve got our indoor friends covered with a video, too). 

The Museum looks forward to reopening its doors as soon as possible and hosting the very popular Kohl’s Thank You Thursday when it’s safe to do so.
