Marvel at the largest collection of Wisconsin art ever assembled when you visit the Museum of Wisconsin Art in downtown West Bend. Here’s what you need to know.
The Museum of Wisconsin Art, 205 Veterans Ave., sits on the banks of the Milwaukee River just south of Washington Street in downtown West Bend.
See the latest hours here. The museum is closed on New Year’s Day, Independence Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
Entrance fees for the museum act as patrons’ subscription for a year-long membership, meaning visitors can return for unlimited trips in that time. There are several membership tiers, with Basic One (one person) being the least expensive at $15. Basic Two memberships are $25 for two adults, and families can take advantage of the Basic Three+ membership level for $50, which offers unlimited access for up to four adults and any number of children.
See membership levels and details on benefits here.
The Museum of Wisconsin Art is home to an extensive collection of 19th and 20th century paintings and drawings, and it houses the largest collection of Wisconsin art ever assembled. The museum hosts a number of permanent and seasonal exhibitions every year.
