Milwaukee Art Museum#6 in Best Things To Do in Milwaukee
This art museum, located in downtown Milwaukee on Lake Michigan, gets more praise for its buildings (there are three) than the art it contains. And thats because the Milwaukee Art Museum looks futuristic with its gleaming white suspension bridge, 90-foot vaulted glass ceiling and cantilevered wings. Just make sure to visit on a calm, sunny day. According to past visitors, the Quadracci Pavillion's wings (the Burke Brise Soleil) won't open if it is raining or windy.
Inside, the art is also worth perusing. Within the 341,000-square-foot complex, visitors can browse 30,000 works of art, including one of the largest Georgia O'Keeffe — a Wisconsin native — collections in the world.
The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., but it offers extended hours on Thursdays. Admission is $17 for adults; $15 for students (with an ID), military personnel and seniors; and free for kids 12 and younger. In addition to the collection, visitors can also find restrooms, a museum store, a cafe, a coffee shop and a wine bar inside.
