The art museum is free which is great. I would also highly recommend popping into the Valparaiso university chapel which is directly across from it. Small and you can do this in less than an hour.

The Brauer Museum of Art, based on the campus of Valparaiso University, is a gem of a museum that features works by such internationally known artists as Andy Warhol and Georgia O'Keeffe. The permanent collection is impressive and the special exhibits never disappoint.

This museum, on the bucolic Valparaiso University campus, is a bit trickey to find but well worth a visit. Currently, the path to the Arts Center past the imposing Valparaiso University chapel is lined with life-sized stylized standing and sitting mysteriously comforting statues. The Museum...More
