Forward! Milwaukee and 175 years of Wisconsin Statehood

FEBRUARY 9-MAY 25, 2023

This limited-time exhibit commemorates the 175th anniversary of Wisconsin by exploring major statewide themes through the lens of Milwaukee residents. These stories about individuals, families, businesses, and organizations demonstrate how Wisconsin’s history is made up of everyday people and their experiences.

While you’re visiting the new exhibit, visit our Oral History Hub located in the vault on the first floor. You can tell us stories in two-minute increments or schedule a time to tell us your family history. This will continue Milwaukee’s history for future generations.
