Experience Yesterday Life... Today!
If you have given support for past Founder’s Day events, we thank you for your past support! We have bigger plans for this year’s event and hope that we can count on you to be a part of it. We ask that you consider making a pledge this year. We need your help to celebrate Founder’s Day 2019.
The Chudnow Museum provides a rewarding and educational experience that truly offers something for everyone. Visitors from all 50 states and 60 countries are greeted enthusiastically by the Museum staff that share stories, discuss the demands of daily life, and showcase innovations made by and for people who lived in Milwaukee almost 100 years ago.
We are planning a day filled with craft soda, bbq sandwiches, ComedySportz, historical plaque unveiling, music, and other activities. Please help us with a gift today! Any amount is appreciated – no gift is too small.
An investment like this ensures our work educating area students and offering tours to visitors continues. It ensures the success stories of people, products, and companies are showcased and celebrated for generations to come in our museum. We look forward to hearing from you soon! Thank you.
