“The house is amazing.”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

The house houses much of the artwork and is an experience by itself. Many more pieces of art are on display in the museum addition.

“Group visit”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

We were here for a stop on a tour of the area while our others were in a conference. Old architecture and paintings were cool.

“Gorgeous mansion”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Certainly worth seeing! It is beautiful! I go there several times a year. Like to see what art is on display, but also always make a trip through the mansion. A treasure to have in our community!

“Just the building is special”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

Always changing exhibits in a beautiful 19th century mansion. Factoid: a piece of the Soviet satellite "Sputnik" landed in 8th street near this museum. The admission is free; but after spending some time there you will probably make a donation. A nice place to spend an hour or two.

“A fun little stop in our road trip!”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

This month they have a display of place settings! I thought it sounded kind of "hokie". But it was really interesting! Also went to the Mansion. It had alot of collections-was not what I expected-not alot of original displays in the house. It was worth our time and their is not a fee-just donations so always worth your money. Person that showed us around was very knowledgeable. Learned some info about the history of Manitowoc.
