We visited the Museum with our son and his family. It is an excellent family attraction. It has a small but perfectly adequate collection of European and American art representing all the major periods. The special exhibits are always imaginative and well done. The Museum is also very child friendly with a special room for children's activities. Our nieces particularly liked the special exhibit on animated films. Finally, the restaurant was quite nice. There was a children's menu and the food for the adults was well prepared and modestly priced.

We became members earlier this year and have traveled in at least 4 times since. The special exhibits are done very well, and the restaurant is superb and a treat unto itself. Can't wait for the next grand opening event next week.

The museum itself where the main art is housed isn't in the new architecutre. There are some modern displays (with straws and loads of little metal pins) that are really neat and very different. The main parking garage is quite neat as well however very small if you're there on a very busy day. We arrived at opening time Saturday morning and found the garage barely used. The charge for 2 adults - $30. It's a nice museum for sure but due to size, think $15 is a bit high. The bridge over the highway and into the city offers a great view of the lake and building.

The Milwaukee Art Museum exudes the energy of a sail boat skimming across Lake Michigan. It is lovely architecture and a wonderful place for an event on the main floor, be it a business meeting, a wedding, etc. And, the location is so close to Chicago either by car or train. And, there is a great outdoor (not the winter, of course) eating place right next door along the water. I believe it is called the Harbor House. Enjoy! The special exhibition at the Museum on poster of Paris included lovely posters from the late 1800's through the art deco era. The explanation was most informative.
