The Milwaukee Public Museum offers adventure for visitors with diverse interests. You can explore the Ice Age to look for a Saber-Toothed cat among the glaciers, see King Tut on his chariot in the Crossroads of Civilization exhibit, or interact with live butterflies as they flutter in our butterfly garden. Go on a photo safari in Africa, snap a selfie with Granny on the Streets of Old Milwaukee, and even find the hidden button to make our rattlesnake rattle! Stop by the Dome Theater where you can get closer to the action than ever before when you see a planetarium show, giant screen or 3D film featuring new Digistar 6 technology and better-than-HD quality images.
