Visitor Policies Overview
Timing is Everything
A timed ticket is required for entry for all visitors, including members. Tickets are limited to meet a reduced visitor capacity, so advanced online purchase is strongly recommended. On-site purchases must be made via debit/credit card; no cash will be accepted. Find more admission info below.
For the safety of the community and our staff, a mask is required to be worn by all visitors over the age of three per the City of Milwaukee ordinance. Learn more about how to wear a face mask here, and why they're important here.
Know Where to Go
All visitors must enter through MPM’s main entrance on Wells Street and during the 30-minute entry window indicated on their ticket.

Please maintain six-foot social distancing between family groups during your visit.
Please take advantage of the hand sanitizer stations throughout the Museum and avoid touching surfaces.
