Did you know that the Milwaukee Public Library and the Milwaukee Public Museum used to share the same building? A national competition was held to find an architect to design a building that would house both the library and the public museum; the winner was the neo-Renaissance design of Milwaukee firm Ferry & Clas. Their design featured a unified entrance and separate wings for the library and museum. The building, located at present-day 814 W. Wisconsin Ave, opened in 1898.
The Milwaukee Public Museum moved to its present-day location on Wells Street in 1962. Today, the building on Wisconsin Ave is home to the central branch of the Milwaukee Public Library.
For more information on the building, please visit the Milwaukee Public Library’s website here.
