Report recommends demolishing Domes to construct joint facility with Milwaukee Public Museum

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A new report commissioned by the Milwaukee Public Museum - Domes Task Force has recommended the Domes be demolished to make way for a new shared facility for the Domes and MPM.

The Mitchell Park Domes were included on the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places list in 2016 and designated as a National Treasure in 2017.

The Senior Vice President of Field Services at the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Barb Pahl, released a statement saying, "Demolition of the Mitchell Park Domes, an iconic symbol of Milwaukee and a National Treasure, would result in an irreparable loss for the community."

The statement goes on to say that the public has voiced support for the Domes which is preparing reports on two options of targeted investments and destination attraction but not demolishing the Domes.
