Milwaukee Public Museum Reopens Thursday. Here’s What You Need To Know.

The Third Planet: Earth Exhibit is open starting March 4th at the Milwaukee Public Museum.

The Milwaukee Public Museum reopens to the public on Thursday March 4th, but things will operate a little differently to help curb the spread of COVID-19.

Here’s what you need to know before visiting:

A Timed Ticket is Required.

A timed ticket is required for entry for all visitors, including members. Tickets are limited to meet a reduced visitor capacity, so advanced online purchase is strongly recommended. On-site purchases must be made via debit/credit card; no cash will be accepted.

Masks Are Required.

For the safety of the community and the MPM staff, a mask is required to be worn by all visitors over the age of three per the City of Milwaukee ordinance.

Enter on Wells St.

All visitors must enter through MPM’s main entrance on Wells Street and during the 45-minute entry window indicated on their ticket.

One-Way Paths

In order to maintain proper distancing during your visit, one-way paths have been created through each floor of the Museum. Preview or download the maps here.

Some Exhibits Closed

The Museum store, cafe, coffee kiosk, planetarium, dome theater, the Butterfly Exhibit, Bugs Alive, and some other exhibits are closed. Streets of Old Milwaukee, European Village, the Rainforest, and many other exhibits remain open. Preview or download the maps here.

Maintain Distance

The museums asks that patrons maintain six-foot social distancing between family groups during their visit.

Exit Via MacArthur Square

All visitors should exit through the MacArthur Square parking structure exit in order to avoid cross-traffic patterns.
