Milwaukee Art Museum - expert review
On the lakefront, the museum houses collections of paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography, and decorative arts. Its permanent collection emphasizes European and American art of the 19th and 20th centuries. In 2001, a soaring, light-filled addition opened, creating a large gallery that hosts maj...

Summerfest - expert review
It's like punching along the row of pre-set buttons on a radio. As I take the Skyride, a horizontal chairlift that runs the length of Henry W. Maier Festival Park, I hear a few bars from one band and then another and another... Music is being made on no fewer than nine stages below me, and when even...

The Milwaukee Art Museum is proudly proclaimed as Wisconsin's top art museum. It is even better as it welcomed a new addition in 2001, a beautiful structure designed by Santiago Calatrava that is a new drawing card for the city of Milwaukee.
