This is one of the most over looked places in the area. There are constantly changing displays and exhibits and something for all ages. If you have time there is a full schedule of classes for all ages. The small cafe has great sandwiches for lunch or enjoy a cup of the locally roasted Torke Coffee. And DON'T miss the... More

We went because we were passing through Sheboygan. The museum has been written up in the New York Times as an avant garde new type museum. The public spaces were small (4 Rooms), art on display was mediocre. Ok if passing through but would not go out of your way

Our family enjoyed the Art Festival. Our grandkids had a great learning experience making their landscape gardens. Great event.

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.
