Make history with an event experience at the Milwaukee Public Museum.


The Milwaukee Public Museum offers unforgettable settings for weddings, corporate dinners, conference receptions, business meetings, and so much more. Whether your vision includes being immersed in the Museum’s cultural and natural history exhibits or utilizing a traditional convention space, MPM’s Event Rentals offer the best of both worlds!

Situated in the busy heart of downtown Milwaukee, MPM is one of the top-ten largest meeting and event venues in the city. The Milwaukee Public Museum can accommodate 10 to 3,500 guests within its 80,000 square feet of indoor event space and 9,500 square feet of outdoor space.

Just minutes from the interstate, only two blocks from the Wisconsin Center, and within walking distance of several hotels, the Milwaukee Riverwalk, Fiserv Forum, and an abundance of restaurants and bars, MPM is the natural choice for your next event.

MPM partners with an exclusive in-house caterer that can work with you to create the ideal menu for any type of event.
