If you haven't stopped to see this, make sure you do. An amazing collection of artwork depicting men (people) at work. Some really fascinating paintings of medical procedures in the 16th and 17th century stood out.

This is a beautiful new museum. Be sure to visit all floors, especially the roof with its large sculptures and fabulous views of downtown Milwaukee. The art ranges in age from 16th to 20th centuries, showing man and woman at work.

All artwork is about "work" and an amazing collection. The rooftop sculpture garden is incredible. Dr. Grohmann happened to be there and was quite approachable and friendly, which made the visit even more special.

The Grohmann Museum is at the Milwaukee School of Engineering. This beautiful building and the entire collection is the gift of Dr. Eckhart Grohmann to the people of Milwaukee. I have seen many museums but few have a theme that is carried out in the way the Grohmann accomplishes this. The Man at Work is seen in oils, water colors,... More

This is a beautiful facility on 3 floors plus a roof garden with giant sculptures (you can see from the street). All the art work depicts workers with various skills in many historical & geographic settings. I love the sculptures, large & small. Go, look, relax. The special exhibits have been interesting as well.

Every December, if you're a member of one of the major Milwaukee museums, there's a day when you have free admission to several of the other museums. I took advantage of Swap Day to visit the Grohmann. Unfortunately, I only had about two hours to visit. The staff suggested that I start on the top floor and work my way... More

I stumbled upon this museum on the campus of MSOE downtown Milwaukee. Inexpensive addimission, very interesting exhibits and a roof top that will amaze you. They have many bronze statutes on the rooftop exhibit. Loved it and have been back twice.

Great museum. Three levels of awesome art depicting industrial evolution over the last several centuries. I tip my hat to MSOE for making this available to Milwaukee.
