In fairness, we didn't have much time to spend in the museum, but, having seen the street plaque and the circled impact point (on the street) where the piece of Russian Sputnick crash landed, we needed details. And T-shirts. It's an interesting exhibit detailing the...More

My wife came up last weekend (we live in Marshall, WI and I am a traveling sonographer). Came upon the Museum and, on a whim, stopped in. Entry is free, but " $5 donation is suggested." Fair enough, but I hardly ever carry cash. Would...More

This isn't a big place, but is nice to walk through. We especially enjoyed seeing the mansion part of this. It's a beautiful place. We enjoyed the art displays as we walked through.

Our cruise stopped for the day in Manitowoc, and so we walked up 8th Street to the art museum. The air conditioning inside felt nice as soon as we entered. The main exhibit we wanted to see was their display of Marc Chagall's 1967 38-plate...More

We love the revolving art displays. During Christmas the house is fully trimmed and so beautiful. We visit nearly every time we go to Manitowoc.

We came for the transient exhibit of submarine paintings, but really enjoyed the Chagall prints the best! Informative and historical banners add rich detail to the individual prints. Also worth venturing upstairs into the house - Samurai doll extreme!

The information above is correct. A rather steep staircase with one landing leads to the exhibit rooms upstairs in the mansion. They're optional, however - quite a few interesting things to see on the ground floor, too!
