With over 40 galleries, Milwaukee Art Museum displays the work of artists ranging from self-taught folk geniuses to Pablo Picasso. Being itself an architectural landmark, famous for its moveable sunscreen in the shape of wings, that folds and unfolds twice daily, the museum has become an icon for Milwaukee. Apart from paintings, photographs, and video art, among many collections, you'll see Baroque and Renaissance furniture, tableware, and metalwork, as well as the best collection of German Renaissance clocks outside of Germany. The museum has some of the United States' finest collections of American decorative arts, Haitian art, and more. If you get hungry, take a peek at the menu in cafe Calatrava, with entrees inspired by the exhibition currently taking place.

  • We went to see the exhibit, Art In Bloom. It was wonderful. Basically, it is floral designs based loosely on art pieces. Amazing use of so many types of flowers & greenery. I am a member, normally I would get in free, but this is a special exhibit so it cost, with a fee, $11.60 per person. Not bad. Keep an eye out for it next year
  • This is a great modern art museum. It has some nice older stuff too. Very open and spacious this art museum sits on lake Michigan in a very modern building. It's a great place to take pictures both in and out. I highly recommend you visit.
