Operating on an apparently tight budget, the Racine Art Museum is worth an occasional 30 minute visit. Visitors won't see any famous artists here, but may be surprised to see imaginative and primarily... read more »
Be sure to read the brochure or you will miss 3/4s of the magic. A simple "neat" brooch to the tourist's eye is suddenly amazing when you realize it is made of belly button casts and lip imprints. Lov... read more »

Tiny, butt very enjoyable. Super friendly staff and amazballs art. I was lucky enough to catch the annual "peep show." All original art using peeps marshmallows. If you can, check it out. Well worth the $5.00
Five stars for an inspiring and fun visit to RAM. The wife and I visited right before Christmas and we were treated to a wide variety of surprises: festive holiday decor, an incredible glass exhibit, a found / recycled materials exhibit, repurposed wood / furniture, textiles, household crafts, et cetera. The list goes on. Local and global artists alike. And all in a beautiful space and in a beautiful location along Lake Michigan in downtown Racine. Wustum Art Museum (free admission) is in another part of town and also worth checking out. Check ahead of time for hours and for the hours of other nearby attractions so that your day goes smooth. RAM admission: Adults - $5 Seniors (over age 62) - $3 Students - $3 Under 12 - Free (with adult - maximum of 3) Members - FREE
I'm always blown away by the caliber of the exhibits for such a small admission charge. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, and the store is just fantastic! RAM is honestly one of my favorite things about downtown Racine.
The Racine Art Museum is a work of art in itself, a modern landmark. The unique museum maintains collections of modern art and contemporary crafts. The chair exhibit was fantastic! I highly recommend a stop over whether en route to or from Milwaukee or Chicago.
The Racine Art Museum (RAM) is a beautiful small museum in downtown Racine.........a 30 minute drive from the Milwaukee airport.........the same distance from Chicago's Northern Suburbs as a drive to the Chicago Art Institute on a weekend day. The focus is the Studio Craft Movement..........art made from glass, clay, fibers and metals (think jewelry) and RAM is the best and most important of this kind in the USA....possibly anywhere. Check the website, see what shows are up and go for a visit. Not to forget, a great retail operation as well.
