MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Public Museum started a massive undertaking to digitize their entire collection. But they need your help to complete the project. Carl joins FOX6 WakeUp with the details.

Milwaukee Public Museum (website)

Discover the unknown stories and facts about our state you never knew. Told through the narrative of objects not normally on display, visitors will uncover the rich fascinating secrets hidden all around us.

Unseen. Unknown. Uncovered.
Hidden Wisconsin spans MPM’s collections in both natural and cultural history and is made up of nearly 50 objects and artifacts that are rarely on display to the public.

Uncover Wisconsin’s mysteries by stepping into an immersive and interactive exhibit design comprised of four themes: Hidden in Plain Sight, Hidden Beneath, Hidden in History, and Hidden Forever. The young and young at heart can sneak behind the walls of a 1920s speak-easy, spy on friends and family with one way mirrors and even have the chance to decipher clues to win great prizes from MPM.
