  • This is a gem in the middle of Milwaukee! A museum with art dedicated to work and industry may not be typical, but it is truly breathtaking! The tour will start on the roof where you step into the most beautiful rooftop green area filled with grass, amazing flowers, walkways and huge statues positioned around the perimeter of the roof which can be seen from the street below looking upward. The collection ranges from current paintings to some going back the the mid-1500s. Don't forget to look upto the ceiling and down to the main entry floor, as art surrounds you. I highly, highly recommend this museum!
  • What a concept- a museum built around a common theme - work. They suggested that we go to the roof and work our way down so we did. Don’t forget to pick in the office on the top floor to see some stained glass. No problem parking on the street from in front.
  • Fascinating museum, documents various types of work and professions. Even has a Norman Rockwell! Lovely rooftop sculpture garden. Grand staircase with ceiling painting not to be missed.
  • My favorite museum for Art in Milwaukee. See paintings and sculptures from the 16th through 20th centuries for an incredibly low admission price. Also has a beautiful rooftop with massive sculptures of people at work.
  • Stunning. We brought our middle school students here a couple years ago and then I brought my family. It is not only about ART, but HISTORY.
