We all know Milwaukee is home to good cheese, great beer, and even better company. But what most don’t know, is that Milwaukee is an art and culture hub. Spilling over with history, art, and eclectic sculptures, The Good Land’s museums promise a diverse, cultural, experience you aren’t going to want to miss. Here is a list of just a few of our favorite Milwaukee museums:
The Milwaukee Art Museum is an architectural landmark. Designed by the legendary Santiago Calatrava, the Quadracci Powerhouse resembles a bird in flight, whose wings open and close twice a day. The 90-foot vaulted glass ceiling will have you memorized. As if the building itself isn’t impressive enough, just wait until you see the 30,000 pieces of artwork that await you inside.
