Welcome to the REVAMPED Jewish Museum Milwaukee Website

Before Jewish Museum Milwaukee was a glimmer in the eye of this community, the Milwaukee Jewish Historical Society developed a web presence.  This website was chock full of information, including exhibits and online databases.  It won the Governor’s Archive Award for providing the public with great resources.When JMM opened in 2008, we reconfigured our website to promote an actual brick-and-mortar site. This website offered our virtual visitors with a taste of what they can see in the Museum and provided helpful information.

Today, we are thrilled to launch our new website.  This website was designed to work on multiple platforms–computers, phones and tablets. In addition, the flexible design enables the Museum staff to add and change the site based on upcoming programs and exhibits.  We are thrilled to maintain our same online collections including the Chronicle Death and Burial Records, and Marriage Records.

We have to thank our partners at Lanex for refining our vision and helping direct our thoughts. This website would also not be possible without the Peck Foundation, who provided the funds for this overhaul.  We appreciate their vision for a Museum website that is both more accessible and more informative.
