MILWAUKEE MUSEUM WEEK

January 18 - 26, 2020
Events and programs planned for all ages and interests

Milwaukee's second annual MKE Museum Week takes place Jan. 18-26 with fun events, interesting programs and special experiences at 17 participating Milwaukee museums. This special week has been created to bring to light the meaningful impact these museums have for our residents, tourism and the economy, and to forming Milwaukee’s well-rounded cultural community. More than a hundred programs or events will be offered during the week and people are encouraged to support their local museums by participating.

In its first year, Milwaukee Museum Week was a success and welcomed thousands of people to participating museums. Whether for events, programs, or just to see the museum for the first time or on a repeat visit, Milwaukeeans showed their support for Milwaukee’s museums. Look for behind-the-scenes tours, curator’s talks, hands-on programs and more in 2020.

On Monday, Jan. 20 thanks to the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, all children 18 and under receive FREE admission to the H-D Museum with an adult.

On Tuesday, Jan. 21 (and every Tuesday through April), the H-D Museum offers $10 Tuesdays with $10 admission for adults, two-for-$10 admission for kids, $10 Taco Tuesday at MOTOR® Bar & Restaurant and 10% off clearance items in The Shop. Guests to the Museum are also invited to participate in #MuseumSelfie day on Jan. 21.

On January 23rd All Day (10 AM to 8 PM), the H-D Museum Curatorial staff has created a special program, Museum Mystory #1: Dial M for Motorcycle. Come and join an interactive story adventure inside the Harley-Davidson Museum. Follow cryptic clues, solve puzzles, and uncover a mystery through this fun hunt through museum galleries. Join the mysterious fun for all ages! This program is offered all day and is included in your admission.
