Reviews for Discovery World Museum
Discovery World Harbor Maier Festival Grounds, 2014-07-07
Captain: , Gulf Breeze, Fl (6909)

This was a highlight of our Milwaukee stop on our loop. The museum is an interactive Science Techonology center geared for kids of all ages boomers included. It is right next door to the Art Museum and on the Lake Shore Park Bicycle path. $20 day dockage, $65 overnight. Single 30 amp power posts. Dockage is first come first serve. Payment after hours is via a drop box and reciept numbers envelop at west ramp base.
Stopped here again 7-07-14 for the night to shelter from Tstrms.
Huge music festival going on in the park so had a concert with many different groups until 1000hrs. Some very ... some very bad. But all very loud! Still a nice spot but expensive @ $65 which the very nice marina with services charges.

If you need to stop into downtown Milwaukee for a few hours, try here. Nice dock area, bathrooms and you are at a neat place to stretch your leggs. Just north of Summerfest, and South of the Caletrava Art Museum. Discovery has a great interactive area that is free and an area to visit for a small charge with huge aquariums and stingrays you can touch. Nice learning area of Lake Michigan history and sciences.
