Food is one of the most universal things, something that connects us all.
That's something that the Milwaukee Public Museum's newest traveling exhibit, "Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture" strives to get across to visitors.
The exhibit, which runs through July 9, encourages people to experience food through all five of their senses -- yes, even taste!
Here are some of the cool things you and the kids can do:
- Visit the Demonstration Kitchen to learn about and taste all different kinds of things -- from herbs and spices to a chocolate celebration!
- Get involved in an interactive game that teaches about how food is transported.
- Marvel at a sculpture that shows how much food is wasted every day.
- Learn a bit about history in the life-size re-creation of a 16th-century Aztec marketplace.
