SPARK! Programs

SPARK! programs are designed for people in the early to mid-stages of memory loss to visit with their family, care partners, or group facility.

All SPARK! programming will be suspended until further notice. We are not able to take reservation requests at this time.

Family SPARK! programs are offered at 1:00 p.m. on the dates listed below. There is a 30-minute coffee social before each program for participants to become comfortable and socialize with peers before we begin. Care Partners are welcome to stay and enjoy the Museum after the program. Street parking is FREE on Sundays.

Space is limited and reservations are required three days in advance by calling 414-278-2714.

Groups from care communities

These programs are available on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2:00 p.m. and are offered to groups. The facility must provide enough staff to assist all attendees. A limited number of wheelchairs are available to use free of charge. Groups check-in at the ticket window to obtain wristbands and check coats if needed, and meet the program facilitator at 2:00 p.m. We encourage attendees to wear nametags if possible (first names only). Reservations must be made at least two  weeks in advance, and groups are welcome to stay and enjoy the Museum before or after the program.
