Some of our Exhibits
Melitta S and Joan M Pick Toddler Barnyard
The new exhibit on the second floor features a multi-level barn play-structure and slide, toys that encourage the development of children ages 0-4 in the areas of gross motor, fine motor, and cognitive skills. The project is made possible with the financial support of Melitta S and Joan M Pick Charitable Trust, a charitable organization based in Milwaukee, Wis., focused on gifts, grants, or loans to other organizations. Project partners include local businesses Custom Built Inc. and Quasius Construction
Crawl your way from the Tree house to the Music Mezzanine and back through the rope mesh Sky Crawl high above the first floor exhibit area. If there is a longer Sky Crawl in the United States, we haven’t found it yet! This, like all the museum activities, is “grown-up safe” so parents can enjoy it too!
In the Center Ring...
The centerpiece of the museum’s second floor is the Siegl Miniature Circus. Local artist and circus enthusiast Jim Siegl spent nearly 30,000 hours creating this one of a kind masterpiece. Each character is hand-carved and hand-painted with amazing detail. Work your way around the colorful circus wagon display case from the three-ring big top to the midway using your ‘fun card’ to activate the characters and rides bringing the exhibit to life.
