“A Must go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

I loved the architecture of the building, but disliked the fact many exhibits did not allow photography.

“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.
