“Lots of fun for young and old”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Three generations went to the MPM for the first time together and everyone had a great time. Very well done and something for everyone, we could have spent most of the day here if the little ones in strollers could have held out. The butterfly room was especially fun.

“Good place for relaxing without a schedule”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

I visited the museam while they had "Real Pirates". It was a great attraction but a bit overpriced. If you are not a huge pirate lover, I would not pay the extra money, although it was interesting to see the artifacts. The Dome Theater was amazing. I have seen an Imax theater before, but this dome theater offers a way better experience, I would reccomend watching "Into the Artic". Also, the cafeteria closes at 1:30. So plan to eat before you come. I ended up eating a soggy beef sandwich from the coffee shop.

I remember going here on field trip as a kid. Amazing that they still have the same things. Makes it a fun trip down memory lane.

“So many great things to see! IMAX theatre & more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I have been here with my kids many times, and we never get tired of seeing the Streets of Milwaukee and the various other exhibits. Museum membership is a particularly good deal. They do a Halloween trick or treating event that is worth the membership alone.

“Nice exhibits.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

They do a very nice job with their exhibits and we've been to several of them.
It's well worth a visit.
