The most remarkable thing about the Milwaukee Art Museum is its exterior. Unique and attention grabbing. The museum is surprisingly large inside.

Was in town visiting family and a relative suggesting going. Was last there 2 years ago. The new addition of both building and collection was beautiful. The current Goya exhibit was as good as any in the world!
