Description [edit]
The Milwaukee Art Museum's collection comprises more than 20,000 works of art from ancient to contemporary and is housed in a trio of unique structures from Eero Saarinen's 1950s building through a David Kahler section added in the 1970s and the Santiago Calatrava-designed Quadracci Pavilion.

The museum houses 15th to 20th century European and American paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, photographs, decorative arts, folk art, Haitian art and outsider art.

MAM's cafe also offers great lunches in a luminous setting with lake views.
