One day we stood inside, and the next day outside to watch the 12 noon opening and closing of the gigantic "wings" on the Museum. From inside the light changes dramatically, and from outside it's a surreal marvel. The Art Museum's collection includes Homer, Durand, Church, also European painters, and wonderful decorative arts to name a few. There's a rather wild outsider art gallery as well. We had come to see the Kenwood exhibit of Gainsborough, Van Dyck, Rembrandt, and it was wonderful. But we were surprised and pleased to find all the other treasures. We'd like to return in warmer weather to enjoy the lakeside views and walks.

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).
