Be sure to read the brochure or you will miss 3/4s of the magic. A simple "neat" brooch to the tourist's eye is suddenly amazing when you realize it is made of belly button casts and lip imprints. Loved the"Go For Baroque" display.

Racine is very lucky to have such a gem in the downtown! Exibits change regularly and feature things you dont normally find at an art museum. Staff is friendly & dont forget to check out their gift shop!
