Milwaukee Public Museum
The Peulicher Butterfly Wing is a favorite stop with domestic and exotic butterfly species flying in a warm-and-humid special glass-enclosed garden. While you're there, learn how to attract them to your own garden or check out the "Wall of Diversity," which features over 1,000 species of butterflies and moths. The "Sense of Wonder" exhibit arranges specimens according to size with a 36-foot-long humpback whale skeleton as the grand finale. There's no shortage of things to do and see at this educational child pleaser.
Milwaukee's Finest – I have been visiting that museum for over 60 years since I was a child and it has only gone through one change and it's called improvement. The educational challenges presented at our museum are absolutely outstanding particularly for the children, as well as, the adults.
Best Museum of its kind in Midwest – Best of its kind in the midwest, have been to many others this is always my fav.
