Date night: Museum

The long wait for spring is finally over! March 20th could not have come any faster because I am ready to ditch my winter hats and gloves and trade them in for sandals and maxi dresses! I got to kick off the start of my spring by getting undeniable proof that I am a Disney Princess. Not only did I adopt a butterfly sidekick at the Milwaukee Public Museum I also got those little candy buttons (You know, the long strips of wax paper with dots of pure sugar on them? AKA the best candy ever) So in my book this was a date worth remembering.

Now I know museums are not everyone’s cup of tea. There is a lot of walking, reading, and history involved and that might just not be your thing. But I love museums. Whether it be art, history, science, I am down to go to any museum any time. Jonah and I have been saying we would get around to going to the Milwaukee Public Museum for about 2 years but never got around to it. I’ll be the first one to admit that I was AMPED about this butterfly room y’all. I was going to hold a butterfly if I had to stand in a humid 75-degree room all day. (Thankfully I didn’t have to because the humidity was grossing me out big time)

If the butterflies weren’t enough to totally make my day the rest of the museum would have too. I’m a sucker for prehistoric entities and got to explore the Dinosaur exhibit. (Really though the best part of the entire day was Jonah telling me additional facts like a tour guide) Then tack on Old Milwaukee, where the candy buttons came in, and I was honestly giddy.

So why should you go on a date do a museum?

  • It’s easy to impress people with facts about exhibits that the museum might not include
  • It’s fun to go in any sort of weather so you never have to worry about your date being ruined
  • You can narrate the museum plaques like you’re on a documentary (Just me? Oops)
  • It gives you an opportunity to learn and see new things with someone you think is really rad!


On a final note I would recommend this museum to others (even if you just go for the butterflies which I seriously urge) So next time you’re in Milwaukee let me know and I will accompany you and impress you with my vast knowledge of dinosaur fossils and rocks!

    Museums are actually one of my favorite pastimes as well. They’re an easy date night and also easy to hang out with friends. Plus, they are usually free which makes them even more fun. Are history museums your favorite? I tend to like science and modern art.

    Great post! x

    So cool! At our county fair they always have a butterfly exhibit! I am definitely a fan of museums myself.

    I love doing something other than the usual dinner and a movie. Museums are my husband and I’s go to for a special date night.
