This was one of the highlights of our visit to Sheboygan. Interesting exhibits. Walking the grounds outside was just as good. And as other reviews have said, don't miss the bathrooms. They're amazing, but I guess it is Kohler, so...

Very well worth the time spent here. No admission charge but donations requested. Numerous programs for children. A lot of art is from the arts in industry program at the Kohler Co. Numerous local artists.

This was our second visit to this place over the last decade (we'd come more often if we lived in-state). We really enjoyed the funky folk art focus of this free museum. It is a relatively small museum but both times the exhibits were really fascinating. And you cannot believe the bathrooms - the best anywhere! They have free parking... More

The exhibits change, so you never know if you will like the offerings, but I appreciate that this center strives to be upbeat and modern. Sheboygan is lucky to have this arts center in their city.

You have to like modern art to like this museum. I found the displays hard to interpret and a little scary at times.

It's not often that you visit a public place and told the bathrooms are a must-see. But in this case, that's what stands out about this arts center. The décor in both the men's and women's bathroom are something truly unique. Overall, we found the staff to be very friendly and most of the art exhibits eye-appealing.
