“Our daughters favorite place to volunteer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

WE love to visit the MAM, and realize what a gem we have when we travel overseas. We just visited the Auckland Art Museum, and while a nice museum, does not meet the high level they have established at the MAM. Our daughter hopes to work there in the near future, since she has gotten an arts management degree at Butler University.
the curation of special exhibits is world class, and when I show my MAM card at other art museums, they comment on the good word they hear of our superb museum...keep up the great work!

“Great place for a meeting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

I had a team meeting ... it was the best I have ever had. The lake view was inspirational ... lots of sun (and moon as it gets dark here at 4:30pm these days). We did the Rembrandt exhibit ... the tour guide was really good. Crisp delivery with historical and sometimes funny details. She made it come alive! I had folks from outside of the US who were very impressed.

The design and location of this museum is beautiful. There were so many incredible pieces of art. The gift store is also very nice.

“Helped put Milwaukee on the Map”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

I can't say enough - the architecture, the exhibits, the tours, the community programs! We've loved having this museum so close to home. You can even do Yoga there some mornings looking over Lake Michigan! Also, stick around to see the Kalatrava open and close its wings! So cool....
