We happened to go while it is being remodeled (free admission, but no exhibits) and it was delightful to just wander around the magnificent architecture of the building. Staff were gracious and helpful answering all our questions. The circular glass elevator is a work of art itself. Hopefully the Cafe will reopen with more interesting choices. So glad to see...

There is currently no art on exhibit. They are changing exhibits, and the permanent exhibit is not available because the space is being renovated. It was also raining, which meant that the roof could not be opened. Overall a wasted visit.

There was a really nice exhibit of French advertising posters from the 1800s when I visited. Such a nice exhibit! The museum itself isn't huge, but has a nice variety of art and a great view of the lakefront. I really enjoyed it.

While weekending in Milwaukee recently we decided to check out the iconic welcome center portion of the museum. Good thing we didn't want to see the exhibits because the museum is all but closed for construction. However, the vast entrance hall includes unique cat walks and lookout points with fabulous views of the waterfront. We also enjoyed a close up... More

On a recent visit to Milwaukee members of my family decided to visit the Art Museum on the lake. The architectural grace of the building made the entire trip worth the visit. Unfortunately, all of the exhibit were being remodeled. But to the credit of the Museum they were holding several free children's art projects all could enjoy. This was... More

Even though the museum is closed until June for renovation, this magnificent piece of architecture is definitely worth a visit.

RIGHT NOW they are pretty much shut down (May 2015) no signs on outside, you get inside after the long winding way to get downtown with all the construction, only to be told at front desk, only the coffee shop(overpriced) and a hallway or giftshop are available to go into! I had been here before, and found staff to be... More
