Help the Milwaukee Art Museum celebrate their 125th birthday this weekend by visiting the museum for free!

All visitors to the Art Museum on Saturday and Sunday, June 15-16 will receive free admission.

I was surprised to learn that the Art Museum’s history dates back 125 years. According to the Milwaukee Art Museum website, Frederick Layton opened the Layton Art Gallery in 1888 near Cathedral Square. The Layton Art Gallery would later merge with the Milwaukee Art Institute to become the Milwaukee Art Museum. The organization eventually moved to their current location along Milwaukee’s lakefront in 1957.

The Milwaukee Art Museum is open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Check out the Milwaukee Art Museum website for more information about free admission this weekend..
