Have seen many of the exhibits here. Body works, Cleopatra, historical works. The exhibits are always well organized and the place is beautiful and easy to get to. Worth the trip.

The museum seems to be in need of an update. It has an old dingy feeling.

I originally planned to just pop in, take a few pictures and leave (my fiance is an architect and loves the architect who designed the new addition to the museum). But, after I arrived, I was amazed at not only the architecture but the overall feel of the museum and decided to stay for one of their free "drop in" tours (Adult admission was $15 but the tour was free). The tour lasted about an hour and our docent was great. She was a volunteer (and a middle school art teacher) - she was very knowledgeable about the space, as well as the many art pieces. She easily answered our questions and explained them in a way that even I - not really an artsy person - could understand and find interesting. This visit was, hands down, one of the highlights of my trip to Milwaukee. It was a great way to spend a cold winter afternoon - although I bet it would be a great way to spend a warm day as well (it's right along the lake and has a magnificent view of the lake).

Worth a stop in just to have a cup of coffee on the lake (that's what we did). The building itself is worth seeing up close.
