North Point Lighthouse
North Point Lighthouse is a beautifully restored 1888 landmark museum and event destination that Frederick Law Olmsted used as the crown jewel when he designed Lake Park in 1893. Climb the 74-ft tower for spectacular views of our lake front and downtown Milwaukee. The Queen Anne Keeper’s Quarters offers insights into Wisconsin’s maritime history through nautical artifacts and keepers’ stories, particularly a woman who saved lives while keeping this light for 30 years.

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!
