About this activity

The Milwaukee Art Museum is a wonderful way to spend an art-filled creatively inspiring day in Milwaukee!

This iconic and beautiful museum collects and preserves art, and shares it with community to inspire and educate.

During your time exploring the Milwaukee Art museum, you can make your way through four floors of over forty galleries, filled with 30,000 works of art encompassing paintings, drawings, sculpture, to decorative arts, and even photography, prints, video art, installation art, and textiles.

Since 1888 as the city's first art gallery, the Milwaukee Art Museum has been collecting art. Today, the Museum has grown today to be an icon for the city and a resource for the entire state of Wisconsin.

Highlights of your visit to the the 341,000-square-foot museum includes visiting the War Memorial Center as well as Kohl’s Art Studio.

This studio is a beautifully family friendly area where you can engage in hands-on art projects and really create something all your own!

This studio is a joint effort between Kohl’s as well as the Museum that brings kids and their families closer to art, a place where they can discover more about it and really immerse in creative experiences.

Drop by the studio for art making inspired by the artworks in the Museum’s collection! Projects change monthly, so there’s always something new to try!
