This museum features traveling exhibits that are insightful and always powerful. On our recent trip we purposefully went to see a diary that was written by a teenager and discovered by a Russian doctor after the liberation of one of the camps.

There is free limited parking on site behind the museum as well as some street parking. The museum is wheelchair and stroller accessible. Many exhibits tell of immigrants coming to the Milwaukee area and their contributions. There is an area in the front where you can sit quietly and read some of the books there.

We went for the Houdini exhibit. It was very well laid out. We also saw most of the rest of the museum. Also nicely curated. The accompanying explanations and timelines were helpful and the staff also nice. A short visit of 2.5 hours and you can really see it all.

I don't usually comment on gift shops but this one had some particularly lovely objects displayed for sale. …

This small museum continues to surprise with the quality of their exhibits and the amount of art and information they can pack into a relatively small space.
