Due to the pandemic, the MMM partners have suspended MMM Day. We have greeted thousands of visitors to the museums over the last nine years celebrating mothers and families on Mother’s Day. We hope to reschedule in the fall, public health permitting. Please check back with us and thank you for your support!
#MMMDay is a great way to explore five unique museums on Milwaukee’s historic East Side for free/reduced admission. There are light refreshments, kids’ activities, prize drawings, and free docent-led or self-guided tours. Walk, bike or ride the free shuttle bus!
Walking and bicycling are encouraged since all of our MMM museums are located within walking distance of each other.
Free Shuttle and Parking
The complimentary shuttle bus runs continuously every half hour between all museums beginning at 11:00 a.m. from MOWA at Saint John’s On The Lake and ending at 4:00 p.m. Utilize street parking near museums or use the County parking lot in Lake Park at Newberry and Lake Drive.
