Worth a visit if only for the architecture. Wonderful exhibits. Special events. Cafe and coffee areas to catch a bite. Parking under the building or on the north end, or street.

The Milwaukee Art Museum building is every bit a work of art, as the art it houses! I love this place, it is beautiful, peaceful and tranquil; I love to stand or sit by the windows in the main hall and look out at the lake - it gives me peace. My grand children love the main hall as much... More

I have been a few times, and love the stable exhibit. The exhibits that come and go can be iffy. They may also have an additional fee. So be careful to check reviews of those temporary exhibits.

I have not seen such an architectural beauty anywhere. It is unique in design and so nicely constructed, it is a must see place in downtown milwaukee. There are many good exhibits which every visitor will enjoy. A great choice!

The art museum designed by Santiago Calatrava is worth a visit if for nothing else but the architecture and the beautiful Chihuly "Isola di San Giacomo in Palude Chandelier II" in the entrance. There are new exhibits approximately every 2-3 months, all of which are world class!

We are members of the Milwaukee Art Museum, so we go to most every special exhibit. Also, the permanent collection is impressive. Just to be inside the world-famous Calatrava is worth the trip alone.

The MAM is a hidden jewel. It is not a big art museum but has a great representation of a variety of styles. The building itself is worth the trip. Easy parking. Hopefully a beautiful day to walk outside and admire the lake front too.
