    I love that you can pack a lunch to bring along because that saves you money especially if you come and have to pay admission but on free days the whole day can be free with packing a lunch

    The new Crossroads of Civilization, a first for the MPM in a little more than a decade, is NOT to be missed. Truly an outstanding experience.....

    The public museum is very deceiving. From the outside it looks small but it is enormous and a great place to take a date.

    Monday is free for Milwaukee residents, so if you don't want to feel crowded don't come on Mondays.
