Why do you allow art to blaspheme Pope Benedict? I did work for E.V. Thaw and he would never sponsor that. Shut it down.

Phillip Naylor is Professor of History at Marquette University. He directed the Western Civilization program for nine years where he insisted that his graduate teaching assistants appreciate the manifold pedagogical besides historical value of art (including in-service sessions at the Milwaukee Art Museum). Art plays an important role in all his courses (Western Civilization, Middle East, North Africa, Byzantium, Modern Europe, and Rock and Roll). He is a member of Marquette's Patrick and Beatrice Haggerty Museum of Art Faculty Advisory Committee and the Milwaukee Art Museum Board of Trustees’ Committee for Education and Public Programs.

Jodi Eastberg is Associate Professor of History at Alverno College where she teaches world and women’s history with an emphasis on digital teaching and learning. Alverno’s abilities-based curriculum requires all students to demonstrate proficiency in eight abilities, including aesthetic engagement. Her classes are engaging active-learning spaces where art plays a central role in creating understanding of and meaning from the past. She serves as the President of the Milwaukee Art Museum’s American Arts Society and as a member of the Milwaukee Art Museum Board of Trustees’ Committee for Education and Public Programs.

Their night events are amazing! This place has so much to offer. It's definitely worth the membership. It's an amazing space with so many options for art lovers, with both classic and modern pieces it's hard not to find something to talk and think about there.

Amazing museum! I bring all my family and friends from out-of-town here and it's always a good experience for them. The museum has a wide range of art that can fit any taste and they have engaging after-dark events as well. The only downside would be the parking and wish members could get a discount or maybe reserve a few spots in underground parking. In the winter, it's helpful parking down there when you don't want to bring your coat inside.

This sail thing was really cool! It is very interesting and unique. Inside the building is amazing I didn't go to the museum because of lack of time but next time I'm in the area I will definitely go. Looks very nice and has a lot of great art!

A great place to stop by to behold a variety of art styles. We've been members for a year and have enjoyed a wide variety of their temporary exhibits. The most recent, the Nature and the American Vision artwork was absolutely breath-taking. There's lots to do and see to keep you occupied for an afternoon. After Dark events are fun and thematic, which makes every month's nighttime hangout unique. Staff are generally accommodating. Building is a wonder to explore, and the view of Lake Michigan is beautiful.

This is a GREAT museum. The views are great and the building is fun to see with automatically lifting wings that come out in the morning and go down in the eve. The shows in the main hall change but there is also some permanent stuff. The industrial decor in it is fun to photograph. You will enjoy the trip to see this modern landmark if you are visiting Milwaukee

Beautiful museum that offers good views of Lake Michigan and the city. I enjoyed the art on the first floor the most, lots of unique and interesting pieces. Even the gift shop is nice!

I've been a member of the MAM for about 10 years and was really disappointed when I stopped by last month at ~4:20 (the museum closes at 5) and was told very rudely by front desk staff that their registers were closed and they close at 5, didn't even bother to ask me if I'm a member and immediately carried on conversing with one another. I don't get to visit Milwaukee too often anymore but always try to stop by when I can. From a membership standpoint, I feel the museum has an elitist vibe that is not desirable for me personally and I don't think I'll be maintaining my membership anymore after this last sad venture. Beyond that, the art and exhibits they house have always been great but subtleties such as these matter.

A beautiful building and beautiful art as well. Admission is cheap to top it all off. Be sure to visit for the festival of the arts if you're in the area in mid June.
