I'm a member of the Milwaukee Art Museum so am probably somewhat biased. This is an excellent regional museum, housing a pretty extensive permanent collection. The travelling exhibits that come here also are generally very good. There are some great views of Lake Michigan from the museum.

We have been to Milwaukee numerous times and always wanted to visit. So we blocked out some time on this trip and weren't disappointed. We spent about 2.5 hours there and I know there was stuff we missed. Glad we invested in the membership, as I know we will go back several more times to get our money's worth.

The displays were fantastic with such detail and artistry. The museum showcased a wide spectrum of different art from paintings to expressive designs. The lighting is perfect and there is something for everyone to see and enjoy!

The new updated MAM ranks high with museums around the world. Permanent collections are highlighted in new surroundings and visiting exhibitions are great, all in a spectacular architectural building with beautiful lake front setting. Free admission on First Friday monthly.

Not art person but just want to stop in to see what all the hype is all about. WOW! By the lake beautiful. When I looked at art I don't understand. Art is art. This place is awesome. Although it's not going to turn me into an artist overnight. It's just nice to go see something so beautiful and artsy.

The building was just amazing on the outside and on the inside. The Art Museum was great and so open and easy to get around. The food was good and quick.

Guaranteed you will stand in the main entrance in awe. The view of Lake Michigan, the white marble floors and walls, the beautiful Chihuly sculpture and that's only a few steps into the museum. First class all the way. The cafe is wonderful too - excellent food and seating is designed to give you a view of the harbor. Don't... More

Whether you come to look at a special exhibit, or want to wander around and completely lose yourself in a painting, the Milwaukee Art Museum has it all. They have collections of early to modern art, classic and contemporary. They often have stuff for kids/teens as well! The building is actually very large although it may not seem so from... More
