Milwaukee Public Museum Hosts Global Kitchen Exhibit

From March 3 through July 9, the Milwaukee Public Museum (MPM) will host Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture, a traveling exhibit where visitors can explore the complex and intricate food system that brings our food from farm to fork.

In sections devoted to growing, transporting, cooking, eating, tasting and celebrating, the exhibition illuminates the myriad ways that food is produced and moved throughout the world. Through exhibits and programs, guests will use all five senses to explore all things edible.

Visitors will discover opportunities to learn about the science, culture and systems of food; learn how taste works in the working kitchen; cook a virtual meal; see rare artifacts; and peek into the dining rooms of famous figures throughout history. Visitors will examine the intersection of food, nature, culture, health and history—and consider some of the most challenging food issues of our time.
