Privacy Policy


Thank you for visiting the Milwaukee Public Museum's (MPM) website and reviewing our Privacy Policy. Your privacy is important to us at the Milwaukee Public Museum. The phrase "Personally Identifiable Information" in this policy refers to information or a collection of information you provide to us through the Internet that uniquely identifies you.

MPM may work with a data provider to target advertising to you personally, through online and offline methods including email, display media, video media, and direct mail. These providers may use personal information that we have collected or that you have provided to locate you online, such as when you visit or log in to websites or mobile applications. When you log in to or visit our website, your IP address may be combined with other de-identified data (such as a hashed, non-readable email or postal address) in order to send ads and materials to you based on your preferences, interests, and attributes. To opt out of this and other interest-based advertising, please visit the industry opt-out pages operated by the DAA, at, and by the NAI at

The Milwaukee Public Museum does not sell Personally Identifiable Information to outside parties. The Milwaukee Public Museum will not release email addresses that you provide to us to outside parties. Names and addresses of Milwaukee Public Museum members are exchanged with other Milwaukee arts and cultural institutions once annually. You have the right to withhold your name and address information from this exchange.

We may also use that information to contact you to provide information about Milwaukee Public Museum activities, programs, membership and development opportunities, products, and special events that may interest you.

When MPM provides you with such information by email, mail, or phone, you will always have an opportunity to decline further communication.
