First Look: Reimagined “Streets of Old Milwaukee”

Be the first to get a sneak peek at Milwaukee Public Museum’s reimagined “Streets of Old Milwaukee” at our 2015 Reasons To Love Milwaukee Party.

Our annual Reasons To Love Milwaukee Party is being hosted at the Milwaukee Public Museum on Oct. 22.

Not only will there be live music, cheese tastings, beer samplings, prizes, an awards show, and more, but you can be the first to get a sneak peek at the reimagined “Streets of Old Milwaukee.”

The full reimagining of the “Streets of Old Milwaukee” won’t be reopened until December, but party attendees will be among the first in the city to get a glance at the enhanced exhibit. 2015 marks the 50th anniversary for the iconic “Streets” exhibit, which closed temporarily on August 3.

In the meantime, you can follow the latest news on the exhibit from @MPMGranny on Twitter.
