Such a beautiful building and absolutely beautiful exhibits. It was laid out very well. Current exhibits include a science theme, 1930s portraits, preschoolers art, self portraits, and "living rooms" in the rooms of the historic house. Free (suggested donation $6 adults, $2 kids).

Cutting-edge traveling exhibits, a permanent folk art collection that is second to none, and (naturally) ceramic art. Often witty. Dependably wonderful local art. An excellent gift shop. And performances! A cultural gem.

The exhibits here are unique and perhaps not for everyone. They are eclectic and fairly contemporary. I'd recommend going to their website to find out if its right for you. They do have the offerings. I've been to several performances and each one was well worth the price of the ticket and the time. They also offer classes and special... More

We enjoyed touring the open exhibit areas AND BATHROOMS in this museum as well as the gift shop. There seemed to be several large unoccupied open areas in the building at the time, perhaps they were in between exhibits? We LOVED seeing the bathrooms and walking through the reconstructed rooms of the Kohler home. There is also an outdoor garden... More

This place is truly must be a top spot for visitors to the Sheboygan area and will surely be a return destination for us. The exhibits change and offer unique and different forms of art. Oh, and check out the restrooms by all means!

My sister-in-law just had her wedding at this venue and it was an absolutely beautiful space with very neat exhibits. The bathrooms are so artsy and unique!

I love the Kohler Art Museum!! They have such unique and fantastic exhibits. They also have art classes, dancing lessons, and group art projects..not to mention the many festivals they hold all year long. It is free to visit and I would not miss it if I were you. Love it!!

...and other things, too. This museum has really great exhibitions. Very nice fiber exhibits, and we also saw a great Kehinde Wiley exhibit. As another reviewer mentioned, the bathrooms are themselves are an experience, and each time I've been, men & women have encouraged the opposite gender to check out their john! It is the KOHLER art center, after all!... More
