To the delight of Wisconsinites, Milwaukee museums have announced they are reopening in March 2021. By the end of the month, Discovery World, the Harley-Davidson Museum, the Milwaukee Public Museum and the Milwaukee Art Museum will all be safely reopened to the public.
Kicking off the grand reopenings on March 4 is the Milwaukee Public Museum, which will be open from Thursdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Following will be the Harley-Davidson Museum and Milwaukee Art Museum on March 5. Both museums will be open Fridays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Lastly, Discovery World will be available to the public again starting March 27 and will be open Wednesdays through Sundays from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m.
“Milwaukee is a city of museums, with visitors filling our galleries from all over Wisconsin, the U.S., and even the world,” says Dr. Ellen Censky, CEO and president of Milwaukee Public Museum, in a press release. “Though we’ve all made successful forays into the virtual realm, being onsite is something that has been greatly missed. We’re extremely excited that we can partner together and reopen to give the community a variety of experiences to share safely in-person again.”
The City of Milwaukee health officials have approved safety plans for each institution requiring protocols including hand-sanitizing stations, online ticketing, limited capacities and social-distancing measures. Each visitor and staff member will also be required to wear a face mask at all times.
