MILWAUKEE - Five small and medium-sized museums in Milwaukee are celebrating the one-year anniversary of working together to promote each other.

The museums have created what they call the Milwaukee Museum Mile, since all are within a mile and often are overlooked by visitors.

They are The Jewish Museum Milwaukee, The Charles Allis Art Museum, Museum of Wisconsin Art at St. John's On The Lake, The Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum and the North Point Lighthouse at Lake Park.

They are planning an anniversary event May 5, where they will all offer free admission or reduced admission. The four museums will be free and the lighthouse will offer two for one admission.

A free shuttle bus will also travel between the museums.
