My parents, girlfriend, and I visited here for a low-price museum to see something different. I especially figured my dad, himself a skilled tradesman and business owner, would appreciate the Steel - Cycle of Industry exhibit. Getting here is fairly easy, and we were able...More

This place is absolutely amazing, but I was really disappointed by the severe underrepresentation of people of color in the artwork. I found 4-5 pieces featuring people of color among the hundreds on display.

The exibits and art work are outstanding and informative and give...More

We stopped by here after being amazed and overwhelmed by the collection at the Milwaukee Art Museum, having low expectations for the Grohmann. Our experience was amazing. First off, the facilities are great. The staff were friendly, several sets of clean bathrooms on each floor,...More

The collected art, paintings, and sculpture of this wonderful museum is a must see! Situated within the campus of the Milwaukee School of Engineering in downtown Milwaukee; the Dr. Eckhart Grohmann collection is unique and exceptional. Housing one of the world's best collections of the...More

Part of the MSOE campus, this museum is packed with interesting objects and works of art. Not your typical stuffy museum atmosphere but geared more toward the beginner or novice museum patron. A unique part of this museum are the rotating statutes along the edge...More

Great art works of the industrial age with a distinctly Teutonic slant. Most of the works shown are the artistry of Europeans, with a large number of German. Plan on taking 1 to 3 hours to take in all of the exhibits

I'm not a big museum fan. Lots of obscure pictures with any consistent theme. This museum is not like that. Focused on work and what people do with pictures of so many jobs--from ironworker to beekeeper. Sculptures and paintings (mainly paintings). 3 50-something guys had...More

Unfortunately, we attended during the time when there wasn't a major exhibit but enjoyed going anyway.

This is my second trip to Grohmann. It lives fully up to it's description as a museum for Labor Art, with it's collection almost entirely of paintings of people in the process of performing their profession, with an emphasis on pre-20th century blue collar works....More

Grohmann is North of the main downtown area, so depending on when you go street parking is fairly accessable. There aren't any lots really close by, but if you're willing to walk a couple of blocks there are a number of lots... More
