Fun For The Whole FamilyMilwaukee Art Museum
Experience cultural and architectural greatness inside and out!
The Milwaukee Art Museum is an incredible place to visit, and the architectural landmark is a must-see! The beautiful white sculptural Quadracci Pavilion portion of the museum was designed by Santiago Calatrava and completed in 2001. It features a mesmerizing 217-foot moveable sunscreen that folds and unfolds twice daily. Inside there is a vaulted 90-foot glass ceiling reminiscent of a Gothic cathedral, amazing exhibits, a store, and a cafe.
The War Memorial Center was completed in 1957 and was considered one of the finest examples of modern architecture at the time. Eero Saarinen designed the building, and it's shaped like a floating cross. This portion of the museum houses a veterans memorial with a pool and various art collections.
The Cudahy Gardens were designed by Dan Kiley and feature geometric landscape designs, plazas, and fountains. You'll be engrossed by the grid of lawns and perfectly manicured hedgerows dividing them.
So, when you're in Milwaukee, take a walk over the Reiman Bridge, a suspension bridge connecting the museum to the city, and explore art, culture, and architecture at the Milwaukee Art Museum.
