The Milwaukee Museum Mile is a unique consortium of museums nestled along Lake Michigan on Milwaukee’s Historic East Side. Five wonderful museums have come together to create a simple and affordable way for visitors to access and enjoy multiple museum experiences and promote the area as a destination for Milwaukee residents and visitors to our city.
Sunday, May 5, 2013 | 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Experience a rich collection of art and architecture during the 2nd Annual Milwaukee Museum Mile Day.
All five museums will offer free or reduced admission, and several museums will offer complimentary docent-led tours, light refreshments and champagne, and prize drawings. Free activities for children will also be available, including a Milwaukee Museum Mile scavenger hunt.
The museums are located in close proximity to one another, along N. Prospect, N. Wahl and N. Terrace Avenues.
A free shuttle bus runs continuously approximately every half hour from one museum to the next along the Milwaukee Museum Mile, beginning at 11:00 a.m. from the Museum of Wisconsin Art at Saint John's On The Lake heading north. The shuttle will cease operations at 4 p.m.
Complete the entire scavenger hunt correctly, turn it in at any museum location and receive a special prize, while supplies last. One prize per family.
