The MKE art museum is a must see. Plenty of opportunities for great pictures and the main exhibit changes often.

The big deal about this museum is its unique architecture.

You may visit it just from the outside and have a good time. Go around it and see its unique design from all sides.

TIP: Try to visit it when the wings are opening / closing.

Visited the art museum for the Rembrandt exhibit, I was very impressed with the museum although not specifically the exhibit (I only saw 1 Rembrandt). Spacious building and the parking garage was warm, it also had a great view of Lake Michigan (even for January).

I had the great fortune of visiting this venue as part of a group of arts and business practitioners from Ireland and I was stunned by the beauty of both the building and the collection.

Not only is the building one of the most beautiful pieces of architecture that I've ever seen, the collection of art within it is breathtaking and one to rival any of the top art museums in the world. The staff are warm and pleasant, the gift shop stocks great items and the range of activity and events is to be envied.

Try to be there at 9am or 5pm to see the "wings" open or close.

Please do not miss this off your itinerary.
