You can have a say in the design for the new Milwaukee Public Museum
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Public Museum and its exhibit design partners at Thinc Design have launched a survey to gather community feedback for the Future Museum. Questions will request input on various exhibit topics and themes, preferred events and opportunities to engage, and insight into what visitors find most valuable in a museum experience.
The survey is now open to the public and will capture feedback through Friday, Oct. 14.
As is standard practice for the experts at Thinc Design, public input will be incorporated into the design concepts they are creating for the exhibit floors.
“We want the design of the Museum’s exhibits and interiors to bring visitors on a journey of discovery through time, places and different perspectives, fostering curiosity about how the wonders of our world show how nature and culture are interwoven.” said Tom Hennes, principal and founder of Thinc Design. “Our approach, which is always informed by a feedback process, is to do a project with communities rather than for communities. It is critical, to our team at Thinc and to MPM, that when visitors explore the Future Museum, they recognize themselves, their history and their world in what they discover.”
Groundbreaking is slated for late 2023, with Mortenson and ALLCON overseeing construction, and the Museum is due to open in 2026. The Milwaukee Public Museum’s current home will remain open until the new space is finished. Learn more about the future Museum on the MPM website.
