Museums in Milwaukee

Milwaukee may not seem like a glamorous Spring Break destination, especially when the weather all weekend turns out to be cold and rainy. It's a good thing we were there to visit the museums. We went to the Milwaukee Public Museum, Discovery World, and the Milwaukee Art Museum. Thanks to reciprocity agreements with Chicago museums, we only had to pay admission to the Milwaukee Art Museum. Here are a few pictures from the trip:


This mammoth was found in the general area of the Milwaukee Public Museum.











The butterfly exhibit is my favorite part of the Milwaukee Public Museum.

The glass reflection is cool.
My wife and I enjoy museums of all types. They are great ways to learn and broaden one's horizon. One of the best I've ever seen was the natural museum in Edinburgh, Scotland. Massive place.

My Twitter avatar Butler Blue III was in Milwaukee recently for the NCAA tournament. But I don't think they let him into museums.

I am a sucker for museums. I don't think I've ever been the Milwaukee museums, but I've been to all the Chicago museums.

I think Greg must've thought I was weird because when we were dating, that's where I wanted to go. It turns out we liked the same things. :)

I've never been to Scotland, Alex, but my husband and I visited the British Museum in London.

Pat, I'm glad we didn't go last weekend!

Maria, I'm glad you and Greg hit it off!
