Spent about 2 1/2 hours there, barely scratched the surface. Much to see and the views of the lake are stunning.

The architecture and green spaces on the lake are alone worth the visit. The museum has a diverse set of good exhibits with a few standout pieces. Photography gallery was excellent. A highly recommended way to spend half a day in Milwaukee.

We spent a lovely sunny autumn Sunday on the lakefront and going to this gallery. There is a lot to see. If I lived here I would visit often and just take it in smaller sections. I loved the glass and furniture in particular.

The building itself is a work of art! Great views of Lake Michigan! Art is nicely displayed and a large variety. Parking across the street. We spent about 2 hours in the museum. It was a nice way to spend an afternoon.

I suggest outside. There are many vantage points. Across the street in the parking garage. At the restaurant nearby (Harbor House).

If you don't mind a very pleasant Milwaukee walk, you wouldn't have to. However, it is an option. Sorry for the delay in responding. I just saw your question now.
