Milwaukee’s Official Hype Man is back! Bucks big man and fan-favorite Bobby Portis showed VISIT Milwaukee some of his favorite places around town and discovered a few new ones. Come along with us as we spend the day the Underdog way.
Milwaukee Public MuseumBack to Top of List
Have a mammoth start to your day exploring Wisconsin’s largest natural history museum at the Milwaukee Public Museum. Roam four floors of exhibits, take a step back in time to the Streets of Old Milwaukee or a giant, 65-million-year leap back to a time when dinosaurs roamed the earth, visit nearly every continent in one afternoon or witness the delicate beauty of butterflies up close and personal in the Puelicher Butterfly Wing. Follow in Bobby’s footsteps and walk with the wooly mammoth or chart your own course throughout the museum’s collection of more than four million specimens. (Just don’t try to practice your hook shot with the Bucks’ 1971 game-used championship ball…)
Milwaukee Public LibraryBack to Top of List
Book it to the Milwaukee Public Library. The Central Library is right across the street from the museum and is an ornate setting to find everything from a brand-new read to a well-worn classic literary masterpiece. The sprawling space and beautiful details make it the perfect place to relax and lose yourself in a good book. Learn more about your favorite exhibits in the museum, discover a new author or bring your little ones for story time.
Baird CenterBack to Top of List
Meet Bobby at Baird Center (formerly Wisconsin Center). A consummate ambassador for Milwaukee, Bobby spent part of his afternoon helping out at a convention in Baird Center. Answering questions, checking in and directing attendees, in true Bobby fashion, he stepped up to help attendees have a great convention experience in the Good Land.

Fiserv ForumBack to Top of List
Bobby! Bobby! Bobby! What would Bobby's Milwaukee be without Fiserv Forum? From the roar of the crowd when he steps on the court, to the chants of “Bobby” raining down from the 16,500 Bucks fans inside the stadium when he makes yet another highlight play, Fiserv Forum is the Underdog's home court. After a sensational campaign for Sixth Man of the Year in the 2022-23 season, Bobby Portis and the Bucks aim to recapture the magic of the team’s title run in 2021.
