It was a cold snowy day in Milwaukee that we decided to check out the Haggerty Museum of Art at Marquette University. The place was the perfect size for a short afternoon. Spent a little over an hour exploring the place. Talked with the student volunteers who were all very friendly. Exhibits were well done and covered interesting themes. Art... More

Lovely venue strolling from free parking on the Marquette campus ( blink and you miss Lot J) Fall foliage and crisp air set calming tone for museum.

The collection on display is outstanding. As the previous reviewer said, "it's small but packs a punch." My problem is that it's too small. I cannot possibly give the Haggerty 5/5 after seeing the truly outstanding collections at other universities like Case Western and University of Buffalo. The Haggerty is definitely worth a visit, but don't plan on spending more... More
