The Milwaukee Art Museum has been collecting and preserving art for 125 years, and presenting it to the community as a vital source of inspiration and education. More than 30,000 works of art can be on display at one time. From its roots in Milwaukee’s first art gallery in 1888, the Museum has grown today to be an icon for Milwaukee and a resource for the entire state. Primary strengths of the museum include 19th- and 20th-century American and European works, contemporary art, American decorative arts, American and European folk art, and an outstanding Haitian art collection. The dramatic Santiago Calatrava-designed expansion features constantly changing exhibitions. Central to the Museum’s mission is its role as a premier educational resource, with educational programs that are among the largest in the nation, involving classes, tours, and a full calendar of events for all ages.
