When in Milwaukee, you must visit this beautiful structure. If you are a teacher, be sure to bring some documentation as admission is waived for Wisconsin educators. We arrived just as a docent was starting a tour of the Kandinsky exhibit. She was excellent and gave so much more insight than what we would have discovered on our own. The... More

Go just to take a look at the building. Yes, you can go inside and walk around for free. But if you want to view the art works (behind closed doors) you have to purchase a ticket - adults $17.

This spectacular, world-class museum was the sole reason for our visit to Milwaukee. The genius of Santiago Calatrava's visionary design is matched only by the genius of the city leaders who saw it as the centerpiece of Milwaukee's renaissance. Give yourself plenty of time--a half-day, if possible--to enjoy the museum: a docent-led tour of the collection (Kandinsky: A Retrospective is... More

The museum's current exhibit, Kandinsky, is excellent. Docent led tour great. They should have had some lower priced Kadinsky themed items in the gift shop along with a greater selection of exhibition posters.

The current special exhibit was Kadinsky. He was an abstract artist, which is not really my thing. However, there were many other areas to explore. The claim to fame is the museum was used in one of the Transformer movies.

I've visited Milwaukee's Art Museum more times than I can count. I've experienced all of the changes from childhood until now, and I absolutely love this location.

The reason for my visit was a family member's wedding, and the museum is unique and special from the moment you enter the facility to the artwork. The view of a great lake was gorgeous, but even more spectacular through the windows at the end of the entry/great hall.
