The American Museum of Advertising and Design is One-of-a-Kind

The Eisner American Museum of Advertising and Design is an interactive educational center located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin focusing on advertising and design, and their impact on our culture. It may be unique in the world as a museum with its focus on advertising and design.

The Museum's goals are to:
Honor and lend recognition to past achievements within the scope of advertising and design
Foster public awareness of the influential role of advertising and design on society
Serve as an educational resource for advertising and design students and professionals and the community at large

With its unique emphasis on the social, historical and aesthetic implications of advertising and design, the Eisner Museum is an important center for research in and discussion of advertising and design.

The Eisner Museum invites school groups with interactive exhibits exploring historical and contemporary topics in advertising and design in ways that relate to daily life. Docent-led school tours are tailored to fit a variety of age groups and curricular subjects, beginning at the elementary level.

The museum offers year-round resource and services for educators. Online Teachers’ Guides are offered as a supplement to a tour and are available on their website in PDF format.
