“Kids love it even tho low tech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

My two boys love it but it is a very low tech place (which is great). There is a kind of bizarre turnstyle with Native Americas wearing various ornate outfits they love, an old street in Milwaukee, and lots of artifacts from various historical eras. For two kids who like xbox, they love going there!

“Fabulous museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

We spent four hours here and it wasn't enough time. There is so much to see and learn. We enjoyed all the different exhibits, especially the butterly room and the mummy exhibit.

“Great little museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

This museum is perfect for a few hours of entertainment. It would be good for families with children as it is not too big or too crowded. The butterfly room was fun.

“Great Exhibits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Enjoyed the whole experience, a very well run museum in all respects. The live butterfly room was wonderful, great to watch the kids expressions when they encountered the insects. Would go back next time I am in town.

“You want to visit this museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Everything about this museum is great. The exhibits were most interesting. Free flowing atmosphere, where even if it is packed with people you still can walk around and view the exhibits. I learned a lot from going there.
