Warmer temperatures ahead…
It’s May first in the Cream City and it is currently SNOWING! Our weather has been well below average the last few days and we are certainly looking forward to warmer weather ahead. In fact, by the end of the month the average temperature in Milwaukee will be a perfect 70 degrees! In the meantime, check out this list of some of our favorite indoor activities in Milwaukee.
The Third Street Market Hall has been a great addition to a previously unused space in the heart of downtown Milwaukee. Opening in the fall of 2021, the market features a variety of food and drink options as well as activities for the whole family. Grab a bite to eat at one of the local vendors then enjoy any of the free activities throughout the hall. Whether it’s video games, shuffleboard, bags, or giant Jenga, you’re sure to find something fun to do. There are also several paid activities including a “selfie museum” and a Top Golf suite. After you’ve had your fill, it may be time to explore any one of Milwaukee’s several museums.
By far the most famous museum, the Milwaukee Art Museum is an incredible building on the shore of Lake Michigan. Opened in 2001 and designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, our art museum will not disappoint. With over 30,000 pieces on permanent display you could spend an entire day roaming the galleries.
A different kind of art can be found at the world’s only Harley Davidson Museum. Milwaukee has been the home of Harley for 120 years and that history can be found throughout the several floors of the museum. Begin the tour with a view of the first Harley, serial number 1, and continue on through the world wars, Elvis, and everything in between. Harley will also host it’s 120th anniversary celebration this July. Milwaukee will come alive with everything Harley over the course of 4 days and will even host concerts featuring The Foo Fighters and Green Day!
Milwaukee has also created the “Milwaukee Museum Mile“. Scattered throughout the East Side neighborhoods you will find the Jewish Museum, the Charles Allis Museum, the Villa Terrace, the Museum of Wisconsin Art, and the North Point Lighthouse. With so many unique options you are sure to find one (or more!) that peaks your interest.
