Milwaukee Public Museum
Reimagines the Streets of Old Milwaukee

Streets opened in January 1965, under the direction of then-Director Carl Borhegyi, who was inspired by a 19th century barbershop and drugstore exhibit. MPM Exhibits Director Edward Green designed the original exhibit to transport the visitor back to a fall evening at the turn of the century. In celebration of its 50th anniversary, the MPM exhibits team raises the bar further by providing visitors with a heightened sensory experience including new soundscapes, “secrets” to discover, sights and even smells, as well as the integration of cutting-edge technology to engage audiences.

Wisconsin’s Best Place to Play in the Snow

Carve up the slopes of Granite Peak Ski Area, Wisconsin’s premier downhill skiing and snowboarding destination; plunge down the longest tubing runs in the state at Sylvan Hill Park; or enjoy the solitude of cross-country skiing at Nine Mile Forest. Snowshoers will marvel at the scenic trails that meander along rock formations at Rib Mountain State Park and the Eau Claire Dells Park.
