Certainly worth seeing! It is beautiful! I go there several times a year. Like to see what art is on display, but also always make a trip through the mansion. A treasure to have in our community!

Always changing exhibits in a beautiful 19th century mansion. Factoid: a piece of the Soviet satellite "Sputnik" landed in 8th street near this museum. The admission is free; but after spending some time there you will probably make a donation. A nice place to spend an hour or two.

This month they have a display of place settings! I thought it sounded kind of "hokie". But it was really interesting! Also went to the Mansion. It had alot of collections-was not what I expected-not alot of original displays in the house. It was worth our time and their is not a fee-just donations so always worth your money. Person... More

This art museum and former home is definitely worth a visit. Exhibits change frequently. No admission fee. Exhibits included doll houses, doll collections, ivories, wood, Boehm ceramics, nice stained glass windows, fun metal yard statues, some world class art.

It had an excellent Frank Lloyd exhibit, as well as other interesting features, including being able to tour the mansion on your own. It was walkable from our lodging, and it was free!

During the holidays they decorate a tree in every room of the mansion. It's great! They also do a place setting display. There is usually something special going on.

I have been to two different special exhibits here and they were both worthwhile. A sweet Wisconsin history.

This house is lovely - beautiful woodwork and extensive art collection that is well curated. In addition, there is an attached wing that houses traveling exhibits. When we were there we were able to enjoy an Frank Lloyd Wright show - very well done.

Beautiful home to tour. Some great artwork. Some of the paitings were a bit amateurish. A good place to visit when you're in the area.
