High class museum with interesting exhibits displayed in a welcoming and easy to navigate space. Wonderful textile exhibit was on view in addition to the permanent collection. Easy to read information, informative docents, and places to sit and contemplate. Definately worth the drive up from Milwaukee.

My family was in Sheboygan visiting family and decided to spend the morning at the JMK Art Center. The museum is amazing and you absolutely should come see it. My only complaint was with the lady in the gift shop who hassled my very well behaved children. They decided to paint on the Budda Board and were told they were... More

We stopped on a rainy Sunday morning and it was nice to find only a handful of other visitors. The staff was welcoming and very helpful and the facility was really nice. Make sure to check out the bathrooms! Although the art is not to our taste, it was interesting to walk around and see the different exhibits.

They had an unbelievable temporary display of fabrics that was out of this world. Also the bathrooms as you enter the main doors are a must-see!

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
