MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Public Museum will reopen its doors on Aug. 21, the museum said Monday.

The museum will reopen to MPM members and donors on Aug. 13.

“We’re excited to welcome people back to the Museum,” said Dr. Ellen Censky, President and CEO, Milwaukee Public Museum. “Though visits in this first phase of reopening may look a little different, we are excited to offer new and unique ways to safely connect our visitors to nature and culture.”

Visitors to the museum will be required to wear masks, will be guided through one-way paths and several exhibits will remain closed.

Visitors will also need to reserve a one-time entry ticket for a specific block of time.

“The safety of our staff and visitors is our highest priority,” said Dr. Censky. “As we carefully and cautiously welcome visitors back to MPM, we look forward to providing members, visitors, and the community with new, innovative ways to encounter our collections.”

Tickets and reservations can be made online on Aug. 6. Click here for more information.
