This art museum is on the Marquette University campus, and it's free! Free parking is available too. The special exhibit was a large collection of Chagall's Biblical prints. The permanent collection also leans Biblical, but often with an unusual twist. One section is made up of Biblical figures in modern attire and contemporary settings. Overall it's an eclectic selection with... More

This museum is very small and only has 3 small exhibits, currently. I did enjoy the exhibit of Biblical sketches, but other than that it wasn't a very exciting visit. But of course, since it is free, you really can't complain! There is plenty of visitor parking on the Marquette campus and it was nice to walk around the campus... More

It was a cold snowy day in Milwaukee that we decided to check out the Haggerty Museum of Art at Marquette University. The place was the perfect size for a short afternoon. Spent a little over an hour exploring the place. Talked with the student volunteers who were all very friendly. Exhibits were well done and covered interesting themes. Art... More

Lovely venue strolling from free parking on the Marquette campus ( blink and you miss Lot J) Fall foliage and crisp air set calming tone for museum. Mulitple floored museum but sparse on the art and admittedly I came in with my art cynical self so it was more a mocking of the modern art. Everyone can find something they... More

I love that this museum is free, and the quality of the artwork it shows is very nice. The only thing is that it doesn't have very much, so you can do it in about 10 minutes. In order to make the visit worthwhile, take a stroll across the campus and see the Joan of Arc chapel too. If you... More

Great little museum but lack of parking makes it difficult to visit here. They also don't seem to advertise special exhibits to the general public.

The collection on display is outstanding. As the previous reviewer said, "it's small but packs a punch." My problem is that it's too small. I cannot possibly give the Haggerty 5/5 after seeing the truly outstanding collections at other universities like Case Western and University of Buffalo. The Haggerty is definitely worth a visit, but don't plan on spending more... More
