We’ve uncrated the art. And unveiled a new art experience.
With our grand reopening in November 2015, the Milwaukee Art Museum concluded a six-year, $34 million renovation and expansion project. Not only have we added gallery space, but we’ve transformed the entire visitor experience, allowing you to view and enjoy the art in a whole new light. But it’s not just a better experience—it’s also so much bigger. We’ve added vast amounts of new art to our galleries, some of which has been hidden away in storage for decades, uncrated and unveiled at last.
With 1,000 more works, it’s like your first visit all over again.
After 14 months of renovation and expansion, we now have room to display more art than ever before. Many old favorites are returning, along with more works brought out of storage. Combined with some exciting new acquisitions, our permanent display has grown to an astounding 2,500 pieces.
