“Transporting experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

This Calatrava building is a wonder -- one of the great spaces in the US. Open, airy, uplifting, incredible views of the lake, fun to be in are a few things that come to mind. Add to that a fine permanent collection, especially in American and impressionist art, and superb traveling exhibits. We recently saw 48 masterpieces from the Kenwood House in London (on tour during its renovation.) All of this makes the Milwaukee Art Museum a real Midwestern gem. Well worth a trip to Milwaukee just for this (though there is much more to explore in this surprising little gem of a city.)

“Incredible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Nothing inside can top the dramatic yet elegant outside. Probably the most stunning work of art in the country.

“Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

If you are an art lover please take as much time as you can to spend it here. This is a magnificent building with a really good restaurant to replenish your reserves. I was really impressed with the collection and the knowledge of the staff.

“Outstanding in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Terrific building is a work of art in itself. Worth going even if you can't get in! The exhibition spaces are well-organized. The purpose of our visit was to see the Treasures of Kenwood House. Amazing collection. Had a superb lunch in the cafe, overlooking Lake Michigan; then afternoon cuppa at the coffee shop, also looking Lake Michigan. A real treat overall. When we visit Milwaukee again,we'll return to the art museum. from the drive in, the parking, access, it was all so easy, and the place rivals many of the east coast museums and galleries. If possible I'd give this place 6 stars!
