Yes, I know I just talked about cheese so you probably think I’m cultured out but I mean art and literature. The Milwaukee Art Museum is a breathtaking lakefront building home to 30,000 works of art hosting almost half a million visitors every year with a collection dating back over a hundred years. The building itself is an architectural landmark made up for three buildings:
War Memorial Center was finished in 1957 – a modernist building shaped like a cross with wings spreading from a central base. The Quadracci Pavillion features 90-foot high class ceilings, a moveable sun screen with a 217-foot wingspan, and a pedestrian suspension bridge connecting the museum back to the city. And The Cudahy Gardens is a network of gardens, plazas and fountains and a perfect place to walk quietly in contemplation!
