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

This place is a gem. And it was free when we visited (we made a donation). The museum is built around the base of the mansion, and it has a pretty nice collection for a small museum - a Picasso ceramic, a Liechtenstein, a Georgia O'Keefe, a Warhol, and some other notables of modern art among about 40 pieces. We... More

The house houses much of the artwork and is an experience by itself. Many more pieces of art are on display in the museum addition.

We were here for a stop on a tour of the area while our others were in a conference. Old architecture and paintings were cool.

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!
