“Rembrandt Exhibit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

A very excellent exhibit featuring Rembrandt with his 1665 self portrait. The exhibit actually came from the Kenwood House of London which is going through a renovation so, Milwaukee was able to get several painting featuring mostly mid 1600 Dutch painting that were collected by the Kenwood House. I believe that the exhibit ends the middle of January 2013. It is WELL worth the visit.

“Fun Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

We had a very nice time viewing all the art and watching the children enjoying themselves with hands on projects offered by the museum. We got to see some Rembrandt works while there! It does have an admission cost to get in and the parking is a little pricey. The museum is a great place to spend the day and there is a nice park and walking area all around.

“Great Saturday event”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

We recently became members of the Milwaukee Art Museum and thought we could take advantage of the membership. I would definately recommend utilizing their free tours where a person walks you around for one hour describing different pieces of art. This way you can ask questions and get a better understanding of the pieces. Otherwise you can purchase self guided headphones for $5. We will definately go back and see more. It can be a full day experience.

“Seeing the Wings is Worth The Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

The MAM, located on the shores of Lake Michigan, is a gem of an art museum. Changing exhibits draw crowds, but I also love the permanent exhibits because they are so accessible. Don't miss having lunch in the restaurand, or the awesome gift shop. Art in Bloom in early spring is always on my calendar.
