Four of Our Favorite Activities for Our Favorite People

Mother’s Day at the Milwaukee Public Museum has activities to tire the kids and special treats for moms. Free admission and drawings for local restaurants will give mom a treat, and special activities for kids will tire them out nice and early. Catch Ultimate Dinosaurs before it closes May 15th, check out the new Downtown Milwaukee, and let her spend a few minutes in the butterfly room -ALONE.

Find a babysitter for Saturday and have an adults-only adventure with a brewery tour or beer tasting. Go big with MKE Brewing, small with Biloba Brewers, or whole hog with Miller. Sprecher has a mother’s day brunch complete with brewery tour, food, and fun for the little ones if you’re looking for a more family-friendly option.

The Milwaukee Art Museum will be hosting a Mediterranean-inspired Mother’s Day Brunch which includes a special gift and a complimentary mimosa for Mom. Hosted in Windover Hall, brunch includes regular admission to the museum and all the art it has to offer.

For a family-friendly option that should have the kids sleeping before dinner, head over to Mother’s Day at the Milwaukee Zoo. Moms get in free, and there will be snacks courtesy of Lifeway Foods. (While supplies last, so I would bring backup if your herd gets hungry).
