Milwaukee Public Museum Breaks Ground for Future Museum

2100 04 SE Corner Evening 04 FINAL

Ennead, together with Kahler Slater, join the Milwaukee Public Museum in celebrating the groundbreaking of the new Future Museum in downtown Milwaukee. A ceremony attended by representatives of the Museum’s broad constituency was held this week to mark this important milestone. The new facility is destined to be a major center of activity, attracting a wide range of visitors with dynamic interior spaces and landscaped outdoor spaces that invite people to explore exhibits about the diverse natural and cultural history of Wisconsin. The future home of MPM is set to open in 2027.

Ennead Architects Principal and Senior Designer Jarrett Pelletier AIA said, “We are proud to work with an institution as beloved as MPM on the vision and creation of a museum designed to nurture community and curiosity, which will positively impact generations to come.”

Ennead Architects Partner Emeritus Todd Schliemann FAIA said, “We are excited to have reached the moment of groundbreaking for the Future Museum and honored to be a part of this project. Ennead is thrilled to see our design, which celebrates the interconnectedness of nature and culture, take shape. We sincerely believe it will serve the community of Milwaukee and beyond as a place of inspiration, discovery, and promise.”
