Milwaukee Art Museum Reviews & Ratings
I've been here a couple of times and had a great time. The building is a piece of art in and of itself and is right on the water. The focus seems to be on modern art although there are a fair share of exhibits showcasing old relics. It is quite spacious and the artworks are beautifully curated.
What a wonderful museum. Gorgeous architecture. A large variety of galleries. My 6 year old son loved it even. The art studio was very fun. We created 2 pieces of art. It is expensive to get it. I need to check if it is a reciprocal membership partner. It was not too bad for us to go because kids 12 and under are free. It has many decades since I went to an art museum. The price may be normal. Great staff. Students get $2 discount. Teachers and military get in free.
The architecture here is terrifically reflective of the surrounding area. The art inside is curated so very well to the space. The property itself looks out onto the lake. We were fortunate to enjoy a gorgeous early fall afternoon. This is a real delight!
The MAM is the crowning jewel of Milwaukee. When you finally have the time to stand in front of the museum you will be able to take in the majesty of the architecture. I highly recommend a stop at the museum. Also go to a MAM After Dark event, they are great events for networking.
Amazing place to see! A Must visiting place in Milwaukee??!! Great archetecture building makes your eyes refresh and staying inside the art building is even better. Many different sections in the main level and other level as well. Thanks to pretty much different era of arts, most of people will be satisfied with. If weather is good like summer, spending time outside would be great as well.
