Enjoyed the 2 nd floor and the wing area the most. One of the staff let me know that the "wings" close and reopen at noon. In about 10 minutes they closed and reopened. Well worth the time to be there to watch. 2nd floor...More

Something for everyone - all types of art plus the incredible building. There were activities for fun, nice park-like areas around it for walking. I take LOTS of photographs, and this place provides some awesome shots.

This is a stunning building from the outside and inside. We enjoyed the architecture and some of the sculptures around the museum, espresso the Chuilly-amazing. We went to the Degas-Picasso exhibit. Well laid out and many numerous prints. Very well done. We will be back.

This is a must if anywhere near Milwaukee. The exhibits are always interesting and the art collection is better than many but the iconic building, often referred to as "the Calatrava" is a site to see. This art museum is one of the largest in...More
