I have always enjoyed going to the Rahr-West Museum. The different prodjects/shows they have keep me wanting more. The house it self is wonderful to see.

“small museum but has great exhibits”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

This small art museum is housed in a beautiful old mansion in Manitowoc, WI. The museum features local artists, as well as information about the old house itself- definitely worth a visit!

“Nice little art museum and historic home.”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

This is a very nice smaller art museum and historic home. The O'keef was out today and the permanent collectiob has a number of other nice paintings. It is a beautiful and well preserved turn of the century home. It's not the sort of museum/historic-home you would travel long distances for, but if you are in the area it is definitely worth an hour or two.

“Where's the well-known art?”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

From descriptions we had read we were excited to visit this museum. Brochures indicated they had something by Picasso, Warhol, O'Keefe, and others. However, the only one on display was the O'Keefe. We were told they rotate because there isn't enough space for everything... but why not leave the famous ones up? A book you could buy with pictures of the art also included some Cassat and other more famous artists that were not on display.
However, the mansion itself is beautiful and fun to walk through, and of course the price can't be beat, so it's still worth a visit.

“Great place to spend a summer day”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Wonderful addition to our town. I took the children on a summer day and let them explore. The older children/adults really enjoyed the museum and the history it told.
