Great museum featuring Wisconsin artists. I took my younger grandchildren on a rainy day and we had a great time. It's a family friendly art museum.

The building alone is reason enough to go. But the art work is amazing. You can wander around from gallery to gallery and see some very diverse pieces.

I was able to visit the museum for just $12 and it counts as my membership for the entire year. The staff was incredibly warm and welcoming. I enjoyed walking through the galleries and learning about Wisconsin artists. I'll definitely be back to take part in member events and programs!

The modern 32,000 square-foot MOWA building has 12,000 square feet of gallery space. The galleries are arranged by period; think pioneer days to contemporary. Also, the vault for pieces not on...

The MOWA staff were very helpful and considerate. Our younger children participated in their free art Saturday. The crafts were creative and fun, with different difficulty levels available.
