This museum is close to Brewers Hill neighborhood. The sculptures on the roof are huge and intriguing, which is worth the trip itself. Very much worth a trip to view such a vast collection of art about the history of work in Europe and America....More

We forget what hard and dangerous jobs our forefathers had to do to build everything from buildings to ships and locomotives. Peasants working hard in fields, butchers and tradesmen. A celebration of those who put their blood, sweat and tears to survive and progress.

This small museum is a real gem just off the river walk. We happened upon it and were very happily surprised at how much we liked it. The themed floors were well presented and loved the outdoor sculpture garden on the roof.

My artsy cousin loves showing off Milwaukee to visitors. OH BOY another museum! Well, start on the roof, work (pun intended) your way down, and enjoy the bizarre art. Most of the images depict men at work (no, not the band), the environs of their...More
