Just a mile from the lakefront, this unique museum venue immerses guests in unforgettable lands and cultures across space and time. The Steigleder Gallery, the museum's largest flexible event space, features an interchangeable wall and ceiling track system ideal for special customized decor. Museum rentals include tables, chairs, and so much more, plus options to enhance the romance with packages featuring a stunning ceiling chandelier and uplighting in the color of your choice. Bring your vision to life in our Steigleder Gallery, just steps away from the built-in entertainment of MPM's world-class exhibits, dance the night away in front of the Butterfly Vivarium, or inquire about our outdoor wedding ceremony options. Transport your guests to the romance of far-flung galaxies, the iconic Streets of Old Milwaukee, and a time when dinosaurs roamed the earth with a wedding at MPM!
From the pyramids of Egypt to the South American Rain Forest, The Milwaukee Public Museum (MPM) has over 125 years of experience in creating memories that last forever. MPM exhibit galleries are among the most unique event spaces in Wisconsin, and add a flare of whimsy whether your tastes lean toward the old world charm of the Streets of Old Milwaukee, the exotic lure of faraway lands or the offbeat magnetism of the dinosaurs.
MPM weddings are built from the ground up based on the couple’s vision by an MPM wedding professional and an event designer from Zilli Hospitality Group, the exclusive caterer of MPM and the most established and experienced hospitality firm in Milwaukee and Southeast Wisconsin.
Special additions, such as a private viewing of a touring exhibit or a night under the stars in the Daniel M. Soref National Geographic Dome Theater & Planetarium, can be included in your individualized package. MPM Receptions and ceremonies can accommodate up to 400 guests.
