When the Milwaukee Public Museum was at the Milwaukee Public Library at Centennial Hall

Saturday, May 20, 2017 - 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Categories: Educational Interest, Entertainment/Recreation, History/Genealogy

The Milwaukee Public Museum is currently planning to build a new building. Did you know that for almost 70 years, MPM and the Milwaukee Public Library shared space in one building? The combined Library and Museum building, which opened in 1898, served as home to both institutions until the 1960s when MPM moved across Wells Street to its current home.  A free program and tour of MPM's old home will feature historic photos of old museum exhibits and see how MPL uses the space formerly occupied by the Museum.  Seating is limited. Registration is required online at mpl.org or by calling (414) 286-3011. Street parking is free on Saturday, but time limits apply.

Location: Loos Room



Registration for this event has closed.
