Can the Milwaukee Public Museum survive?

By John Mercure. CREATED Jul 11, 2014

The Milwaukee Public Museum is home to some very cool stuff.  Every kid should walk "The Streets of Old Milwaukee" and check out the live butterflys in  the Puelicher Butterfly wing.

In recent years those exhibits have been put in jeopardy by a very difficult financial situation.  While it apears that the debt issues and poor financial decisions are largely a part fo the past, the future is still worrisome.  It's aprt of a broader more universal museum discussion.

In the Google Era, with so much at our fingertips (literally) can museums survive?

Milwaukee Business Journal Associate Editor Stacy Vogel Davis is exploring that in this weeks issue.
