More About Hotels near Milwaukee Art Museum...

Impressive Inside and Out

The Milwaukee Art Museum (MAM) was created after the merging of two large galleries, the Layton Art Galley and the Milwaukee Art Institution. This massive collection deserved a spectacular venue to call home and the Milwaukee Art Museum provided just that. Spread out along the shores of Lake Michigan and conveniently located next to downtown, the Milwaukee Art Museum buildings are spectacular. Highlighted by the white sail like structure, visitors are guided to the entrance by the equally impressive Reiman Bridge – a pedestrian walkway designed in the same theme as the Milwaukee Art Museum. The campus itself truly is as impressive as the art collection it houses inside.

Be sure to stop by The Calling, a massive nautical like sculpture installed on the pathway to the museum. This piece has become a defining fixture in the city and offers some stunning photo opportunities with its orange beams and the Museum of Milwaukee as a backdrop.

Historic Collection

With over 35,000 pieces spread over four floors, the Milwaukee Art Museum has something for every art lover. Galleries range from customary to present day and include prints, sculptures, photographs and paintings dating as far back as the 15th century. Notable painters that have pieces at the Milwaukee Art Museum include Ferdinand Bol, Francesco Botticini, and Claude Monet.

The Milwaukee Art Museum also has an impressive collection of American decorative arts, sculptures, and photography – many of which depict the history behind the very shores the museum is perched on.
