“Glad We Went”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

The best part about the arts center is the collaborative art room for kids. My 7-year old daughter never wanted to leave. Great stop on a day trip to Sheboygan. Interesting art and the bathrooms are a must-see.

“Fun museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014

This is so,worth seeing. When I was there, they had the house and work of the rhnestone cowboy.

I loved it. His glitter pictures were something I wanted,

I know, it sounds terrible, but they are winderful.


The whole house was there with the glitter TV and all of the glitter in the house.

I love how folk art is being saved

“Unusual Museum worth visiting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014

The Kohler Company has a unique Arts/Industry program to support the arts and built a lovely museum to house the results. It invites several artists every year to work in the company factory; each artist gives a piece to the Kohler Museum. We were impressed by the breadth and depth of the collection and the educational facilities on site. The beautiful gardens are also worth touring. Everything is free; we found it to be the most interesting place in town. The pieces range from delicate to humorous, large to small, use a wide variety of materials and show the creativity of artists from all over the world. Very interesting and small enough to visit in half a day or less. There is also a portion of the original 1882 house of John Michael Kohler preserved and utilized for part of the collection.
If you go, don't miss the amazing washrooms.

“Unique!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014

We visit JMKAC every few months to see the interesting exhibits and features. So many varied styles of art, artists, shows, etc. The grounds are outstanding and professionally maintained also! Love this place. Spend a day in Sheboygan by visiting Bookworm Gardens first, lunch at Field to Fork, then see JMKAC!!

This is an amazing museum with a rare and wild collection of artists. The bathrooms alone will blow your mind! It took some amazing curating to make exibits like these. Check it out if you are in the area
