About these ratings

This art museum, located right downtown and on Lake Michigan, gets more praise for its buildings (there are three) than the art inside it. And thats because the Milwaukee Art Museum looks futuristic with its gleaming white suspension bridge, its 90-foot vaulted glass ceiling and its cantilevered wings. One Yelp.com user describes it like this: "When you walk inside, it feels like you're Jonah and you've just been swallowed into a whale's insides. Except there's beautiful art and a cute store, so this ain't so bad."

Inside the three buildings are more than 20,000 works that are worth a glance or two as well. But one TripAdvisor user says it won't take you much time to see them all. "It's small enough that you can see the entire museum in about an hour and then enjoy lunch downstairs in the cafe where sometimes they offer outdoor seating," she writes.

The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., but it offers extended hours on Thursdays. Admission is $14 for adults, $12 for students and seniors, and it's free for kids 12 years old and younger. For more information, visit the website
