We hadn't intended to visit the Charles Allis Art Museum over our weekend in Milwaukee, but when we got our tickets to tour the Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum a short walk away, they said our ticket also got us into the Charles Allis. So we walked over to check it out. The building feels much less like an art museum than a historic house. The house was completed in 1911, and it is beautiful. We did a quick self-guided tour through each of the rooms, but we didn't stay long. There's art in each of the rooms, pieces collected by Charles Allis. I wouldn't go out of my way to go to this museum, but it's not a bad place to visit if you're in the area and have a few minutes to spare.

Visited during Milwaukee Museum Mile Day and obtained free admission. Able to walk through the Charles and Sarah Allis residence-turned museum. Together they built an art collection that speaks of an insatiable curiosity about the world and its artistic output. They bequeathed their home and its contents to the public in order to delight, insipre and educate. The home's walls are poured concrete, intended to fireproof the residence and protect its art collection. Hours: Wed 1 pm-5 pm, Thursday 1 pm-8 pm, Friday through Sunday 1 pm-5 pm. General admission: Adults $10, seniors $7, children under 12 are free.

Both the house and the art were interesting, however, I thought it was a bit pricey for what there is to see. We were done in about an hour.
