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.

This is a tiny little museum on MSOE's campus celebrating "man at work". If you're really into history I can see how you could find it somewhat interesting, but if you're not both a huge art and history fan, I definitely think there are better ways to spend your time around Milwaukee.

The Milwaukee Art Museum closed all but one of their exhibits because of renovations. Thank goodness we found this place. The them was work. It was really interesting and the art work was gorgeous. Make sure you check out the rooftop sculpture.
