The Milwaukee Art Museum is located near the beautiful Lake Michigan in Wisconsin, United States. The concept for a major art gallery began in 1872, to combine many smaller organizations. What is now known as the Milwaukee Art Museum was combined in 1957 into a large three-story building designed by Eero Saarinen.

The museum gained more recent recognition through the building of the white concrete Quadracci Pavilion, designed by Santiago Calatrava. This pavilon also houses the museum's shop and restaurant Cafe Calatrava.

The museum is open every Tuesday- Sunday and admission is $14 for adults and $12 for students, seniors and military. Free admission to members and Children 12 and under. First Thursdays of the month are sponsored by Target.

Current exhibits include Frank Lloyd Wright: Organic Architecture for the 21st Century, Framing a Decade: Acquisitions of Prints and Drawings, 2001-2011, American Decorative Arts and the Chipstone Foundation, The Flagg Collection of Decorative Arts and Sculpture and many more.
