A very modern building set in beautiful landscaped gardens. The fashion exhibition in Aug Sept 2017 was excellent. If you are staying in the area, they offer workshops that are related to the exhibitions presently on display.

Very modern and clean. Went there for a class field trip. Kids got bored easily. Great place if you are into art, but not for kids

We drove for five hours to see the fashion exhibit at this museum. It was very nice. Probably not worth the long drive, but it was nice. The museum doesn't have too much on display, but they did a good job with what they had.

Spent a couple of hours here enjoying the current exhibits and the museum shop. Nice small contemporary building that has a great feel to it and interesting shows. Definitely worth the drive. Just wish they had a cafe.

Art & Chalk Fest was fantastic! Chalk Artists from around the country participated. Artists sold some very fine original art. Kids got to make chalk art. Attendance was great, and everyone had fun.

The Museum of Wisconsin Art is a gem for Wisconsin, and certainly for the City of West Bend. The Museum changes its art regularly; is family-friendly; and a big part of Washington County's education system.
