This was a great find! A rather large collection of really great art depicting many different types of occupations- some of which were rather unusual. The rooftop statue garden was really unique. My son and I had a good time meandering through the collection. The staff member on duty was friendly and very polite and we even got a free calendar and guide book to the collection.

I can't believe I never heard of the Grohmann Museum on the campus of the Milwaukee School of Engineering. As my husband and I found out, it is a "must see" if you appreciate fine art. The three story building is beautifully designed and the displays of paintings and scuptures all relate to the story of people at work. Among the 1,000+ pieces in the collection are European masterpieces, a Norman Rockwell, and bronze statues in the rooftop sculpture garden. I found the paintings of early medicine to be especially interesting. On a warm summer day the sculpture garden would be a perfect location to take in the Milwaukee skyline. We found the three staff members we interacted with to be extremely friendly and helpful. As seniors, our admission tickets were only $3. Free parking is provided in a lot just to the east of the museum. Both the building and the art collection were a gift from Dr. Eckhart Grohmann, a Milwaukee businessman and collector of fine art. The museum is definitely a stop worth making.

The works of art here are incredible! The rooftop sculpture garden was very cool and the bronze sculpture collection was extensive, but the paintings are INCREDIBLE! Such a great display. And don't miss the painting on the stairwell ceiling and the floor mosaic in the entryway! There's street parking around the building and a small parking lot around back that's free for museum visitors (you just register your vehicle at the desk).

This art museum's unique focus is on the evolution of work. Sounds boring, but it isn't. Unlike most mixed genre art museums, this one left me with more takeaways because it stayed on a main topic. I saw so many kinds of work I never think about and appreciated the industriousness of mankind. I felt humbled, glad I had never had to do some of those thing, grateful, and inspired. Exceeded expectations.
