If this museum was in Europe it would be ranked as one of the top 4!! Very interesting collection - well laid out, and not an aristocrat in any painting. All ordinary people at work. The rooftop figures left me cold though.

This museum is well worth a visit. You are directed to start at the rooftop sculpture garden and work your way down the 4 floors. The sculptures were impressive, maybe 8 feet tall and mostly of men doing traditional work. There were some wonderful paintings and smaller sculptures throughout the museum. I really liked that the paintings were grouped by... More

Paintings of working men and women from 1500s to the present. Quarries, builders, money lenders, weavers, brewers, factory workers, an amazing variety of workers. Also bronze sculptures. A must see for our visitors.

Most folks from Milwaukee have never visited this fantastic museum with art focused on American industry. There are sculptures, paintings and artifacts. One of the best entertainment dollars in Milwaukee.

This is truly a hidden gem. The mosaic on the lobby floor sets the tone for a very worthwhile museum collection. Don't miss the stained glass in the office on the rooftop.

A great museum for the $5 admission. The rooftop sculpture garden is a great place to relax and enjoy the views. I went on a Tuesday afternoon and there was no one else in the museum other than the students from MSOE. I enjoyed the other floors of predominantly Dutch, German and French artists.

I stopped in the museum while I was touring the MSOE campus, I'm an alumni. I was fascinated by the concentration of art depicting the early industrial age of Milwaukee. I learned a number of things concerning the history of Milwaukee and the surrounding area that I was not aware of. The museum is free to alumni. It also has... More

Had this museum all to myself on a Friday morning, which was both great and sad. Great because this is the most interesting art museum I've ever been to and I got to enjoy it without interruption. Sad, because I suspect people overlook this magnificent place. My favorite place in Milwaukee.

This is a beautifully laid out museum with incredible statues on the garden roof top. The floors feature painting from the 1600s to present including Dutch masters. All the art is industry/work oriented including doctors, dentists, farmers, laborers, etc. I would rate it as one of the top 5 attractions in Milwaukee. It is on the campus of Milwaukee School...

This museum is amazing and dedicated to honor working men and women and appreciating the craftsmanship and building feats of ordinary people. Mr. Grohmann collected inspiring art of people working at their crafts. The greatness of this museum is in the showing of everyday workers making our buildings and bridges works of wonder. How did they do that? Many of... More
