I really wanted to like this place. However, there really was nothing to see. The admission price was low, but for what? They seem to have the potential to be a much better museum if they had a better catalog / exhibits. The gift shop had more interesting things to see. The building itself was of nice modern design.

I took my one-year-old daughter which I was a little nervous about, but the museum is just the right size to get through in an afternoon and she loved looking at all the pieces too. The exhibitions felt cohesive, though they all focused on different medium and styles, they all showcased regional artists or unusual craft. The museum is situated... More

RAM is a nationally renown museum highlighting artistic crafts and jewelry. The core collection grew from Karen Johnson Boyd's personal crafts collection. The museum has attracted the works of nationally famous craftspeople and has grown to become the nation's leading crafts museum. Drop in and then have lunch at one of the area's local restaurants. Not to be missed!

Operating on an apparently tight budget, the Racine Art Museum is worth an occasional 30 minute visit. Visitors won't see any famous artists here, but may be surprised to see imaginative and primarily local talented individuals' works. The quality of the shows, as well as the shows themselves comma range from mediocre and dull to occasional sparks of capability. Don't... More

Be sure to read the brochure or you will miss 3/4s of the magic. A simple "neat" brooch to the tourist's eye is suddenly amazing when you realize it is made of belly button casts and lip imprints. Loved the"Go For Baroque" display.

Racine is very lucky to have such a gem in the downtown! Exibits change regularly and feature things you dont normally find at an art museum. Staff is friendly & dont forget to check out their gift shop!

This museum is excellent for those who appreciate the creative spirit of craft art. There are different types of work that can attract many different interests people may have. The museum is both local, national and international with the work it displays. The building itself is also a marvel. It is a must see!
