MPM: Big Is Here

The Milwaukee Public Museum's situation was dire. For years, they'd been struggling with declining attendance, huge financial losses and a perception of being old and boring. To make matters worse, they were launching a new exhibit on one of the oldest, most played-out subjects possible dinosaur fossils. But by treating the exhibit launch as more Hollywood than museum, dinosaurs were literally brought to life on the streets of Milwaukee. #BigIsHere captured an entire city's curiosity and resulted in the most successful traveling exhibit in a decade.
