Welcome Educators

The Eisner is particularly well suited for school groups; our interactive exhibits explore 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. One month's advance notice is required for self-guided and docent-led tours; rates are $2 per student for self-guided and $3 per student for docent-led. Contact our Program Director - Katie Sorenson at 414-847-3285 or ksorenso@eisnermuseum.org for more information.

The museum offers year-round resource and services for educators. Here you may choose from a number of options to assist you in classroom activities, or to lead you to other design and advertising oriented web sites. 

Special educator memberships allow teachers to join the museum at a 40% discount and include free admission, exclusive invitations for openings and events and a 10% discount at local restaurants.
