It is all open!

Last time we were here it was closed for renovations with only a small gallery open. Loved the sale taught art. Go and enjoy.

The art collection is impressive. We especially enjoyed the European gallery and the contemporary gallery. Be sure to watch the wings open or close - opening when the museum opens and close when the museum closes.

This museum is wonderful. It is very visit-able (not sure that is a word) because you can visit in segments. You can spend an hour or five hours. Good place to bring kids. There are recognizable masterpieces, outsider art, student art, contemporary pieces. Special exhibitions change about every 3 months. Additionally, the restaurant is good, and good ambiance...it overlooks Lake... More

The Art Museum has so much to offer. If you are not an expert, call ahead for a free docent tour. We did this with my retiree club and it really enhances your visit. They will accompany any size group or individual and Taylor the tour to your special art interests. I highly recommend it.

The Milwaukee Art Museum building is a work of art itself. If available, try the cylindrical glass elevator as the entrance. As you walk in, there's a colorful disc sculpture on the ceiling. To your right will be a beautiful blown glass sculpture. Besides the Andy Warhol art, Rodin sculptures, and a great collection of Georgia O'Keefe, not to mention... More

It's a must see. The crown jewel of Milwaukee. My favorite is the Bradley wing. There aren't a ton of well known originals but we aren't the Louvre.

Whether you are visiting Milwaukee on vacation, for a conference or live in the area, a visit to the Milwaukee Art Museum (MAM) is definitely worthwhile. Situated on the shore of Lake Michigan what you view within and outside of the MAM is world class. Hungry? No problem an excellent restaurant is located in the lower level and looks out... More
