Sunday afternoon free concert was superb! Between that and the Fassbinder film later in the afternoon, there wasn't as much time to enjoy the art as we'd have liked. We'll be back.

Another UW-Madison gem. Lots of great art in the permanent collection plus rotating exhibits. Not so large that one is exhausted trying to see everything but large enough to offer a stunning variety of art. Something for everyone.

We saw the vanishing Iceland photo exhibit which was very good. The museum was free and not very crowded, so it was easy and comfortable to go from one piece of art to another.

One could easily spend hours seeing an amazing & well-displayed art collection right next to University of Wisconsin.

There are wonderful archives and exhibits. Parking is a pain. There is no public parking next to the place unless you really know your way around the area. Then you know where and when to go. Usually there is something interesting on display.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Chazen Museum of Art. The closest public parking to the museum is the State Street Campus Garage located at 415 N. Lake Street.

I never would have gone here if it wasn't for a college course field trip. I loved it, it has so much to look at. The paintings are amazing and worth spendnig some time at.

The museum has numerous collections along with exhibits that change on a routine basis so it’s never the same experience. If you’re local, I’d recommend going more often and not trying to see the whole museum in one trip. There’s more to see than you...More

Really spend a few hours just gazing at the creativity its well worth some charitable dollars to amble through and do some wondering. Some are more to my liking than others but overall a very nice collective of art connoisseurs.

Absolutely... it's in heart of UW Campus. There are several places across University Ave, or you can walk a couple of blocks over to State St.

It's about a 5 minute walk: cab would take much longer but about the same travel time if not more.
