The Concert

You’ve seen the Milwaukee Public Museum – but have you heard it?  For one night only, experience your favorite museum exhibits like never before:

  • Go back in TIME with the sounds of a prehistoric hunt in the dramatic Third Planet exhibit
  • Immerse yourself in NATURE as MPM’s Rain Forest comes musically to life
  • Contemplate CULTURE as you walk through a new sound installation in the Pre-Columbian and Pacific Island exhibits using instruments dating as early as 20,000 BC
  • Hear the SOUND of the future with the latest electronic music technology in the Planetarium

Audience members will be divided into groups and guided through the museum in rotation to experience performances on every floor.


Tickets: $25 (general admission), students half-price
