I returned for the special exhibit of Italian paintings from the Glasgow museum of art. Nice-size exhibition -- enough to get a good picture, but not overwhelmingly large. Good taped discussion. Right now, the other galleries in the older section seemed closed as the museum undergoes a major re-do. The building itself is something to see -- wide open modern... More

Please be advised that the museum is mostly (one exhibit open during a 12/2014 visit) closed for repairs and expansion until an estimated 9/2015.

This is a really excellent museum, but it is under major renovation until fall 2015, so the only thing one can see is whatever special exhibit they have running. I think this means that when they take down one exhibit and bring in the next they may be totally closed during changeover. Check before you go!!! Once they get past... More

I'm a member of the Art Museum, so I go there fairly often -- but it's high time I review it! The new exhibit is really splendid. For this and any other exhibits, I would encourage visitors to look at the museum's website and find out when there's a lecture, or especially an "express lecture", (which is a 30-minute buzz...

Great museum with some unique displays. We spent about 3 hours and could have easily filled the whole day. The little houses were so interesting! Construction in the area combined with traffic made parking rather confusing. I suggest finding a garage, as the city is happy to charge tourists for expired meters, even if you're only 2 minutes over...really. I... More

Well, I am not exactly in to art, but the first time I saw the museum, I want to get in there. It is a beautiful building with many beautiful exhibitions. You can go into the building for free, only have to pay for the art museum part. I had a lot of beautiful pictures and very enjoyable time with... More

This place was spectacular. I am a lover of art, as is my boyfriend, and we enjoyed spending hours in this place. We have moved to Milwaukee almost a year ago, and we cannot believe we waited this long to go to the museum. We are overjoyed that we found such a place to view and see all of the... More

When I went, it was mostly vacant. Saw the artifacts and a special show. Good place to be right in the middle of the downtown.
