The Milwaukee Public Museum is one of the largest natural and human history museums in the United States. It welcomes more than half a million visitors every year and serves as a place for learning that interests even the most diverse group of people. Situated in downtown Milwaukee, the museum is very accessible to the public.
Since it was established in 1882, the museum has been collecting specimens and artifacts. Today, it contains up to 6 million pieces of historical items. The museum consists of 3 and a half floors of exhibits where visitors can have a world tour in just one day. It also houses the biggest dinosaur skull in the world and a life-size mock-up of a T-Rex. The Milwaukee Public Museum is also the home of the Humphrey IMAX Dome Theater and the Daniel M. Soref Planetarium which is considered as the biggest and most updated planetarium in Wisconsin.
