  • Discovery World
    Discovery World’s 120,000 square feet of exhibits celebrate exploration—both of technology and aquatic life. Guests can gaze at a 75,000-gallon freshwater tank filled with species found in the Great Lakes, stroll down a glass-enclosed tunnel beneath the 65,000-gallon saltwater tank containing colorful Caribbean fish, and admire jellyfish showing off their limber break-dance skills before getting their hands wet in touch tanks with sturgeon, stingrays, and more. The museum further satisfies thirst for watery knowledge with to-scale replicas of the Great Lakes and the Challenge, a 19th-century schooner. Discovery World houses plenty of exhibits dedicated to innovative technology, including Les Paul’s House of Sound, which features guitars from Les Paul’s own personal collection. Visitors can also practice flying a plane and skywriting marriage proposals in the airplane simulator, or peer inside a nuclear reactor as it generates energy.

  • Brew City Bruisers
    An all-female, amateur, flat-track roller-derby league, the Brewcity Bruisers' mobile mayhem has dazzled audiences and has been digitally immortalized in the Nintendo Wii game Jam City Rollergirls. Take in a sensory assault of devastating checks and merciless puns in the bout between the Shevil Knevils and Maiden Milwaukee, where respective captains Anita Bier and Moby Nipps throw elbows against Bionika and Betty Clobber in a grudge match. Then stay for the second bout, where captains Blue Siren and Rhoda Ruin lead the Rushin' Rollettes to bang wheelie-spurs with Servin' Justice, Pabsty Cline, and Sharkira's Crazy Eights.

Temporary and traveling exhibitions pass through each year, spotlighting everything from Rembrandt to color photography. Upcoming highlights include tattoo art, nineteenth-century portraiture, and, in collaboration with the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the abstract paintings of Wassily Kandinsky.

Most Popular Attraction/Offering: Exhibits on Golda Meir and Jews Who Rock Q&A with Ellie Gettinger, Education Director What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of? Jewish Museum Milwaukee has beautiful engaging displays, including the only Marc Chagall tapestry in Milwaukee. This is an epic piece?it's 14'x19') and provides perspective on Jewish history. In addition, our changing exhibits enliven the understanding of the Jewish experience. Every three months, JMM has a totally new display to explore. Have you ever been a patron of your own business? If so, what was the most enjoyable part? I love touring the Museum. There are so many interesting and unique stories that show the development of the city of Milwaukee. There is a lot of information, but the museum's size makes it easy to get through in an hour or two. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? Right now our changing exhibit is Stitching History from the Holocaust (through February 28)? the museum's largest exhibit to date. The exhibit details the experience of Paul and Hedy Strnad, a woman who sent eight designs to Milwaukee in the hopes of immigrating.
