Milwaukee Public Museum’s Dinosaurs Need Some Love

MPM is asking fans for submissions to give their dinos the attention they’ve been missing.

Calling all dinosaur lovers: the Milwaukee Public Museum’s collection of dinosaurs is collecting dust as its doors stay shut during the pandemic. According to MPM, they miss their more than 550,000 visitors a year, so they’re asking for fan submissions!

The museum is asking kids who love dinos to send in drawings, notes, photos, dance videos, songs, stories, favorite memories and whatever else they can think of to keep the dinosaurs company until they can have guests again.

The dinosaurs are featured in the museum’s The Third Planet exhibit, which first opened in 1983. For nearly 40 years its dioramas and skeletons have been delighting audiences of adults and children alike. Now, this is a chance to give back and show the dinos how much we love them.

Fans can send their submissions to MPM’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or email ( for a chance to be featured on the museum’s Lonely Dinosaurs website. Check out this video for some inspiration!
