The Hare Brained Road Trip Day Two – Discovery World Milwaukee

Day two of our amazing adventure, or the trip to torture Aunt Em took us to the Discovery World Museum in Milwaukee. The museum is on the shore of Lake Michigan east of town and shares a green space with the Milwaukee Art Museum. We actually parked at the art museum and walked over to Discovery since we planned to finish at the art museum.

For Discovery World we used our ASTC Museum pass for our admission.  IF we had paid admission was $17 for adults and children 3-17 are $13. Active military is $10 for them and their family members.  Parking is  $8 for two to three hours or $10 for three to six hours. I had done some research online but was not sure what to really expect here but my child loved it!

She played in the flight simulator, and with the pulleys.


She laid on a bed of nails and tried to look serious like it hurt.


We watched the Pneumatic Dinosaur.


But we spent the most time and went back down to the Reiman Aquarium. They had touch tanks with Lake Sturgeon and Sting Rays.  That was fun as it was Aunt Em’s first time touching a Sting Ray.


There were also pretend underwater submarine labs for the kids to play in.


There were many aquariums in the Reiman area, its hard to pull Daughter away from the area. Especially if there are touch tanks involved, we could be there for hours. They even have a large tunnel aquarium you can walk through.

We had a great morning there and would love to go back again.  We pulled Daughter out of the building and quickly ate a sack lunch before visiting the Milwaukee Art Museum next door.

Discovery world is open Tue – Fri 9-4 and Sat – Sun 10-5.
