Milwaukee Art Museum, Milwaukee Reviews

  • Amazing museum. We never saw the wing roof actually flap, but beautiful nonetheless. Great views along the water front. Great exhibits inside and some children's activities as well. We didn't pay attention to the closing time to the museum (underground museum parking lot) and our car got locked in the garage when we were out walking the shoreline. Security was awesome and let me in to get our car. Thanks MAM!

  • What a day at MAM! I am not sure what to rave about more, the exhibits or the building itself? Everything is infused with art - and it is all yours to interpret and you make whatever you want to make out of it. There is so much to see and do - I literally spent 6 hours walking around till my feet hurt. There is something else about the location of MAM, and the stunning architecture. It is mesmerizing. Are you in a dream? Or in a boat? So ethereal, full of light. You feel like an item with Lake Michigan. is it a whale, or are those wings? And yes, they do pull them in towards closing time at 5pm. Collections are awesome and if you get hungry in between, do try out the restaurant, it is pretty good!

  • Beautiful art by many amazing artists! We spent over 3 hours immersed in the traveling exhibits and the home exhibits. We saw Warhol, Chagall, O'Keeffe, Goya, Picasso, local artists, historical pieces, and silver pieces crafted by Paul Revere. The views of Lake Michigan are just as beautiful as the art. The Cafe was amazing-- so many culinary delights. The people there are kind and helpful and make the experience memorable. We loved how many people were there to enjoy the museum. And we appreciated the educator's discount too! Definitely worth the 2 hour drive to visit and we will be back soon!

  • This is one of my favorite Milwaukee gems. I loved visiting as a teen and I still enjoy it every time I go - the building itself is as stunning as ever, and they’ve got really solid permanent collections - a broad array of different eras/styles. Really worth the visit if you haven’t been yet.

  • Beautiful place! Right next to Michigan lake shore and right in the downtown. The interior is just as beautiful as the exterior. And don't miss out to see the "wings flap" at 12 noon everyday. Wings open up at 10am and closes at 5pm when the museum opens and closes.
