500 N Harbor Dr

United States

Discovery World is a museum located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, at 500 N. Harbor Drive. When the museum moved to Milwaukee’s lakefront in 2006, it changed its name to Discovery World at Pier Wisconsin. It formerly was located at 815 N. James Lovell Street.

The museum, which is also known as The Center For Public Innovation, focuses on innovation and technology, as well as Great Lakes education and conservation. Its building is filled with interactive exhibits, theaters, the Reiman Family Aquarium and Wisconsin’s official flagship, the Denis Sullivan, a fully functional sailing vessel modeled after a 19th-century Great Lakes schooner. The entire Great Lakes watershed, built to scale, addresses freshwater issues, stewardship, and our relationship with freshwater resources. Many of the exhibits have to do with Milwaukee or the Great Lakes (including a 3-D diorama of the Great Lakes)
The museum is operated by Discovery World, Ltd. which was formed after a merger with Pier Wisconsin, Ltd.
