I would take my students here as a teacher, and my own kids here as a family day trip. It is a fascinating art museum. Even when I took kids as young as 2nd-3rd grade they were enthralled with all the museum had to offer. great museum!

Not worth the visit while renovations are underway. All permanent exhibitions are closed until summer 2015. There is 1 visiting exhibition and a bunch of amateur art without a unifying theme. Unbelievably they still charge full price.

The MAM surprises by the choice and quality of its exhibitions. It compares very adequately with its "neighbor" in Chicago, that is in my opinion. Keep in mind that I am a Rotterdam native where we had the Boymans museum and a stone's throw away the Mauritshuis (Vermeer) in the Hague. Its presentation on the lake makes me think of... More

We were able to take in the Kandinsky exhibit. Excellent showing with much history of the artist and the time. We were also there for the closing of the "wings." Just another amazing feature of this exquisite building. Definitely go when you are in Milwaukee!

Just driving by, you are drawn to the uniqueness of the building. It is just stunning, especially when the 'wings' are up over Lake Michigan.

Cafe is a lovely place to have coffee and dessert. Nearby Coast and harbor house with a view of the lake and museum are great places to bring special guests from out of town. The Lakefront Art Festival was always something I looked forward to each year!

Such a beautiful and unique building with the back drop of Lake Michigan. Mondays or Thursdays they usually have free admission, go online and check. In the summer time we like to go to Milwaukee Market, pick up some food and wine and have a picnic lunch on the grounds of the Art Museum.
