A Quilt, a Scientist and the Milwaukee Public Museum: Teaching Children Americaâ��s Colonial Past
Get a taste of some of the great research happening in Milwaukee during our monthly Lunch & Lecture presentations. Take an optional guided pre-lecture docent tour, explore the topic du jour with an MPM curator or special guest, and if you’re hungry for more, stay for a great lunch! January’s guest is Valerie Davis, Honorary MPM Curator of History.
