Great art work, beautiful building

Good place to spend a couple of hours when they have an art collection to view. The place is spacious and has several exhibits that are permanent fixtures.

The museum is beautiful from start to finish. Our two groups of 100 "Sweetheart Mystery" travelers were able to visit in February. All of the people at Rahr-West were so helpful as we were able to set up a canvas painting activity for our group. It was a fun and memorable experience for all. Then we were treated to very...

Great history of Manitowoc with local artist showing along with house of famous local family as they lived in the early 1900's. Out of museum is location where piece of Spuknik satelite landed in early 60's.

The museum was very enjoyable. It was really nice to see all the old furniture and art work and how the mansion was maintained.

We came to the museum for my child's school field trip. It's sad knowing I lived here my whole life and never been here before. It's so beautiful. I have to say my favorite was the furniture, I am in love and am now looking for old furniture to refinish so I can have a piece of art in my... More

The Rahr-West Museum and Mansion is a great place to visit. During the whole year, the mansion is open to the public. It is an actual home that has been restored - what a treat! It is especially a treat during the Christmas season. The rooms are all decorated for Christmas - as they may have been years ago -... More

This is a nice mix of an art museum and a mansion that is still in very fine shape. Looking at this museum along with the Submarine Museum in Manitowoc, you can build a nice weekend trip here and really get a good return for your money. We are planning a tour for the Rolls-Royce Owners Club and this museum... More

USA Today listed the Rahr-West Museum as 1 of the top 10 small museums in the US, so when a family reunion put us in the area I jumped at the chance to see it. We were not disappointed. The woodwork inside the mansion is amazing in its detail, & reminded us of how this type of work is a... More

We stop in at the museum every couple of years when we visit Manitowoc, and it never disappoints. This June they had a Colorama display, a series of Kodak ads that were employed on buses and subways in the 60's. Very colorful for their time, they are scenes from around the world where a Kodak camera is shown in the... More
