  • This is a fantastic art museum! It has a unique focus on birds. Lots of interesting special exhibits that vary in focus. The presentations for new exhibits or by Artists- in- Residence are informative and entertaining. Outdoor sculpture garden is engaging. Free Admission.
  • This is one of the best place to see art in Wisconsin. I have been coming here for years. I was 9 years old or so when I came here for school. It's just a great place to go for everyone. The grounds are so nice anytime of year. Just go and see.
  • A stunning sculpture garden surrounds the multi-storied building. The interior is bright, clean and beautiful in its simplicity. There was an artist q&a and demonstration, along with some of his work for sale. There is a dedicated section for children to create and learn as well. We didn't have time to explore the gift shop sadly.
  • Oh I can't say enough about this museum!!!! If you like art and if your kids enjoy creating things then this is a place for you! There's a section in the basement purely for kids with little tables for them to create things pertaining to the exhibit they are showing. Or they can go over and play and enjoy stuff that is also pertaining to the exhibit upstairs. They have an outside area that you can walk through with sculptures. The exhibits change over a course of time and they display something new. If you plan ahead of time they will prepare a tour for you with a Docent and have a craft at the end. Or you can wander through it @ your leisure. And the best part is it's all FREE!
  • Great way to spend a cold Wisconson afternoon. We enjoyed seeing the Quilts.
