Long Weekend at MPM!

Long Weekend at MPM!

Presented by Milwaukee Public Museum at Milwaukee Public Museum

Activities include:
Watson House
Sully and Susanna Watson took their family from the oppressive conditions of ante-bellum Virginia in 1834 and, after several years in Ohio, arrived in Milwaukee in 1850. Through skilled labor and business entrepreneurship, the couple played a vital role in establishing Milwaukee’s black middle class. This interactive program explores the Watson’s family history through images and objects that illustrate this vibrant era in the city’s black heritage.
Birding 101
Come learn about the various birds of MPM and discover how you can become an amateur birdwatcher. Hear about John C. Robinson’s drive to make birding a more inclusive activity for all.
