Host Your Corporate Event at MPM


Milwaukee Public Museum offers a wide variety of unique event options amidst a backdrop of countries, cultures, and world wonders.

Located in the heart of downtown Milwaukee and home to a 212-seat lecture hall, three floors of iconic exhibits, and meeting spaces like the Bert L. and Patricia S. Steigleder Special Exhibits Gallery, MPM can comfortably accommodate up to 3,500 guests.

Built-in entertainment and onsite coordination services maximize this venue's value. The Museum's unique add-on experiences include special screenings in the Daniel M. Soref Dome Theater and Planetarium, docent-guided tours, historic treats at the Haymarket Candy Store or Candy Cart, scavenger hunts, your company’s own slideshow or video shown in the historic Nickelodeon Pastime Theater, and more!

Featuring more than five separate meeting and auditorium spaces ranging in size and capability, the Museum can host large group sessions, breakout spaces, lectures, team-building activities, breakfast, lunch, and an evening reception – all under one roof. Our largest flexible event space, the versatile 12,000-sq. ft. Steigleder Gallery, even offers an interchangeable wall system for custom event, conference, and convention set-ups.


MPM works with an exclusive caterer who provides all food and beverage services within the Museum's facilities. MPM also offers in-house AV capabilities for all your presentation needs, and adjacent covered parking is located right next door.
