I enjoyed my time at this museum but I was very disappointed about how sexist the bathrooms are. The men's bathrooms are so much better, really interesting take on delft blue with modern scenes and architecture styles. However, the womens' bathrooms were all about women's clothing. Since all genders are welcomed to take a look, I would encourage the museum to look at the message they are sending to young girls verses young boys.

Charming little art museum. Not so large that you get bored. Part of the collection is in an old mansion that is worth seeing in itself. The bathrooms are amazing. Be sure to check out both the men's and women's bathrooms no matter which sex you are. Amazing tilework and even the toilets (Kohler, of course) are decorated.

We visited the John Michael Kohler Arts Center during the Midsummer Arts Festival. Truly beautiful inside and out. Many wonderful displays and something around every corner. If you are in Sheboygan, you should put this on your short list. There is no fee for admission but a suggested donation is $6.00 for adults and $3.00 for children. Certainly worth the cost.

JMKAM is a diamond in the rough. For a city this size, I wouldn't expect this sort of quality art museum. And it isn't your usual boring art museum with pictures on the walls. I like to call it "alternative" art. Some exhibits are even intercative. The exhibits are frequently changing so there is alot of variety. I've seen a giant whale made out of felt, and a whole house covered in glitter and sequins. There is acafe, though I've never eaten at it. The gift shop is fun to peruse and across the way is an art room for kids. Don't forget to check out both bathrooms also. They are an exhibit themselves!

What a treat! Definitely visit this Arts center when you are in Sheboygan. We really enjoyed the work and studio exhibition of Lenore Tawney. Her cloud Labyrinth was very intriguing as well. I'm not sure I've seen an artist's studio recreated as this. We also found the collection of Dr. Charles Smith sculptures very meaningful. Art is definitely healing. Don't miss the restrooms. I don't know about the men's room, but the women's room is so interesting I took photos!

Loved the bathroom wall tiles and the Art rooms where we could make creations of our own. The gift shop is a fun place to purchase creative gifts to delight children of all ages!

We had planned only an hour-and-a-half visit before dinner, but could have spent much longer. The current exhibits in The Road Less Traveled series, with emphasis on artist environments and including artists like Stella Waitzkin, David Butler, Mary Nohl and photographer Fred Scruton, is fascinating. And even the restrooms are filled with ceramic art that results from the cooperation of artists and the scientists/engineers who work with the Kohler Company, which is not far away. The gift shop is also among the better ones we've visited.
