Was worth the stop and a cool drink on the patio made for a nice afternoon treat. (And yes - check out the bathrooms.)

Fun exhibits, featuring untrained, do-it-yourself artists from around the country. So-so cafe. Showcase bathrooms (this is Kohler country, remember) which have been featured in articles and art books. Community involvement. Great street art fair in July.

We thoroughly enjoyed the fiber exhibit and the art made of vitreous china and the kids' art but the most amazing were the bathrooms. Each one was a tour de force of ceramic art and, yes, we went into the mens' rooms too, knocking before entering. If you ever get the chance, go to the museum to see the art... More

This is a hidden and not well know Art Center in all of Wisconsin. Some of the traveling art shows here have been in big named cities and in some cases they capture exhibitions that only a few cities have and yes they come to Sheboygan. It's a must see and no long lines and close street parking

We enjoy the Arts Center. It makes for a nice calm, relaxing afternoon. The displays change every couple of months. There is a small gift shop, and a small place to buy and eat lunch. The theater puts on shows of all types. We've seen comedians, musical performances, and movies. I would imagine it's pretty much like every other little... More

This place has great changing themed exhibits, plus the hands on art room coordinates their art stations to the exhibits. It is the BEST!!! Blow huge soap bubbles! The public restrooms have artist created tiles that are magnificent, colorful, whimsical, full of detail! Check out the ladies and the men's room -- just knock first and ask if the coast... More

I've been a member of the Kohler Arts Center for three years. They offer exceptional alternative and industrial art, classes for dancing and cooking, and they have shows and fundraisers. Plus they have what they call the Artery, where your kids (and you) can make art based on the current theme at the Art Center. You can choose your level... More
