What is the Milwaukee Museum Mile?
The MMM is a joint effort of five museums to create a simple and more affordable way for visitors to enjoy multiple museum experiences while promoting the East Side as a destination for all. The museums are located within walking distance of each other. Discover Milwaukee’s hidden museum jewels and experience the history, architecture, culture and art that have come to define our city.
