Annual Gala

MPM Gala 2023

This is a momentous time for our Milwaukee Public Museum.

As we build our iconic new home to serve 5.5 million people in the next decade, we want to give you a sneak peek inside. Join us at our annual gala, “Inside Out: Designing Our Future.”

You and your guests will meet and talk with our world-class curators, exhibit designers, and architects while viewing amazing collection items coming out of storage for the first time to get an up-close look at how these collections are inspiring our future exhibits. The evening includes cocktails, gourmet dining, and dancing. The event’s extensive auction will feature prizes such as dining experiences, travel packages, sporting event tickets, spa specials, and much more!
