We want your input on the Future Museum!
Milwaukee Public Museum and its exhibit design partners at Thinc Design have launched a survey to gather community feedback about visitor preferences for the Future Museum. Questions will request input on various exhibit topics and themes, preferred events and opportunities to engage, and insight into what visitors like you find most valuable in a museum experience.
The input of our community has been a key component through the first phases of the Future Museum design process, with focus groups and thousands of individuals providing their input and guidance. For this next phase of design, we are seeking even more input from people all around Wisconsin. The results of this survey will influence how we bring ideas to life as we design the interior of the building and its exhibits.
The survey is now open to the public and will capture feedback through Friday, October 14.
The public phase of fundraising efforts for the Future Museum kicked off in July 2022 after MPM had already raised nearly $110 million toward its creation. In conjunction with the campaign kickoff, architect partners at Ennead Architects and Kahler Slater unveiled renderings of the Future Museum building.
Groundbreaking is slated for late 2023, with Mortenson and ALLCON overseeing construction, and the Museum is due to open in 2026. The Milwaukee Public Museum’s current home will remain open until the new space is finished.
