“Unexpected and fascinating collection of art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

The theme of work made this gallery unique and far more interesting to our family group than most art galleries. This is a must see collection!

“Grohmann Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

This is a collection of outstanding quality, displayed in excellent modern galleries, and well worth the very reasonable admission charge. Fascinating and little-known European paintings dating from the seventeenth century to the twenty-first. Something out of the ordinary - not to be missed if you visit Milwaukee.

“A must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

This is the best collection of industrial paintings I have ever seen, and don't let the word 'industrial' put you off. They are paintings and sculptures, some life size, of people going about their everyday lives, mostly in Europe. The quality is outstanding and 2 hours simply was not long enough. Don't forget to go up on the roof and see the sculptures up there too. Each floor is themed, which helps you as you go from floor to floor. I cannot choose a favourite as almost every painting was so expertly crafted. If you go nowhere else, do visit this gallery. It is really very special.

“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

This museum is a real treasure. It's not well known, but it should be. The building, the sculptures on the roof and the art inside are terrific. Don't miss this when you visit Milwaukee.

“Well done”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

I like this museum and bring visitors here. You can see the paintings close-up and the mosaic floor and painted ceiling at the entrance are very captivating. You can go at your own pace, and the kids don't bother anyone because it is never crowded. The rooftop garden with statues are a highlight.
