The Milwaukee Museum Mile is a unique consortium of museums nestled along Lake Michigan on Milwaukee’s Historic East Side. Five wonderful museums have come together to create a simple and affordable way for visitors to access and enjoy multiple museum experiences and promote the area as a destination for Milwaukee residents and visitors to our city.
Sunday, May 4, 2014 | 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Experience a rich collection of art and architecture during the 2nd Annual Milwaukee Museum Mile Day.
All five museums will offer free or reduced admission, and several museums will offer complimentary docent-led tours, light refreshments and champagne, and prize drawings. Free activities for children will also be available, including a Milwaukee Museum Mile scavenger hunt.
The museums are located in close proximity to one another, along N. Prospect, N. Wahl and N. Terrace Avenues.
Creative Trust Moving Pictures Program
The Milwaukee Museum Mile is pleased to partner with UW-Milwaukee’s Flourish Festival featuring performances created by their Creative Trust’s Moving Pictures Program and performed at all five Milwaukee Museum Mile locations. The Creative Trust is an alliance between UWM’s Peck School of the Arts and area long-term care communities focused on art creation and arts programming.
About Moving Pictures
Moving Pictures is a live interactive performance that imagines the stories behind a piece of art from each Milwaukee Museum Mile location. Join us in creating a short story from a photo, and then experience a re-telling of a story created by area elders. Inspired by the TimeSlips storytelling project and the elders in Milwaukee's Creative Trust, an alliance to foster life-long learning through the arts. There will be a different story performed at each museum.
