Neat place, hidden gem

This is a really neat place. You almost can't tell it exists from the road. Cool sculptures abound! Don't plan for this to take all day, in an hour or so we were done.

This is a lovely outdoor sculpture garden and home to art and art installations. There are several sitting spaces to take in all this beauty. A great space for an event as well as they have catering available. Hidden gem in Milwaukee for sure, I'll be back!

This is a hidden gem on Milwaukee's north side. You won't find it by accident but it is well worth the trip--an eclectic collection of interesting sculptures from all over. Thanks to Mrs. Bradley for leaving a peaceful, relaxing environment full of interesting artwork.

This was originally the country home for Peg Bradley and her husband, of Allen-Bradley and Co. Peg was quite the collector of modern art - inside and outside and this was the place for her to place about 50 sculptures on their 40 acre estate. After you pay admission and get a map, just start walking around the estate and... More

I really enjoyed wandering here. Lovely home and land, and interesting pieces! I really liked the yellow one and the 'cube'! Definitely worth a couple of pleasant hours, even if you aren't into modern art (like me). I wish the map had been better though. It was difficult to use and I wish it'd had more background on the pieces.

If you have time to kill, then this is the place to kill it. The grounds seemed to have been let go as far as upkeep. it's relaxing if you want to read a book under some trees on a bench but as far as oooohs and awwwwes, you wont get that. it seems like the grounds keeper got laid... More

Private property turned into a sculpture garden. Take your time strolling the grounds to look at the sculptures of various artists: Just be sure to bring sturdy shoes as there are no walkways...you will be walking through the yard! Beautiful pond and niches to explore, along with photo ops. Small area in the home lets you view some of the... More

Had a nice afternoon exploring the grounds. There is some interesting sculptors there and a lot to discuss! Nice place to take a stroll with your honey or just to get some alone time and see some amazing art!

This is a nice place to take a break and wander around some green space. Powerful sculptures scattered around grassy areas and pond. I saw some wild turkeys along side a large metal sculpture. This is a self- guided tour, with no route to follow you can just wander. But do NOT wear high heels, this is all in grass,... More
