With the majority of their regular exhibits closed, the museum is featuring 500 Years of Italian Art which closes on January 4, 2015. Each painting is described but what really helps to better appreciate the works is the availability of a thick tome of information located in each room, secured by a wire to the viewing benches. If the works... More

Variety of exhibitons but some are too cutting edge for my taste. Outside building structure is unique and worth it to see.

Its a skeptic world when you talk Art. But the bottom line truth is the undeniable agenda that the facade and layers of the MAM are truly remarkable. Do yourself a visionary treat, visit, relax, be creative, be open. And if your lucky, the MAM Wings will be too. Think Art!

I have attended the museum many times and I always go on Target free Thursdays. It's so nice to see the art for free. Normally the main museum is open along with the traveling collection, but be forewarned that the "old" museum is being remodeled. I knew it from the web site, but it can be disappointing if you were... More

This has to be one of the best regional museums in the US. There's a lot to take in, both inside and out. The path along the Lake is worth taking, as is the bridge from downtown, starting at the Mark di Suvero sculpture. The architecture is world-class and highly entertaining just to walk through. It's a different experience to... More

This museum is beautiful and I don't only mean the art. There is a huge Dale Chihuly chandelier in the lobby/atrium that is a stunning feast for the eyes. Museum personnel are to be commended for the unique and interesting exhibits they get here, as well as the annual special events they hold. The Lakefront Festival of Art in June... More

I happened to visit the Museum on a Target free Thursdays. On Thursday, the Target Corporation pays the admission fees of all attending, even non-residents of Wisconsin. Thank you Target. The Main Galleries are closed for restoration but I visited in November during a special traveling exhibit from the Glasgow Scotland Museum, which included 400 years of Italian painting. One... More

We went here last weekend, and were disappointed to learn that the majority of the museum is closed for renovations. They only had one exhibit open which was nice, but I was hoping for more. It is worth visiting the Museum just to marvel at the structure. We will definitely return when the renovations are done and they have new... More
