USA Today listed the Rahr-West Museum as 1 of the top 10 small museums in the US, so when a family reunion put us in the area I jumped at the chance to see it. We were not disappointed. The woodwork inside the mansion is amazing in its detail, & reminded us of how this type of work is a thing of the past. The art is quite varied from oil paintings to wood carving, and the Japan room with its many gifts from Manitowoc's sister city in Japan is a varied representation of Japanese art & culture. This room alone makes a visit to the museum a must.
