This museum, part of the Milwaukee School of Enginering, is a gem that very few people know about. Dedicated to "Human Endeavor," all artwork focuses on the many aspects of work and the human spirit of creativity. Be sure to visit the roof garden where the massive statues surround a parylike setting. Mr. Grohmann's office is a museum in itself with stained glass windows and his personal art collection. This is definitely a must-see when you are in Milwaukee.

This is a great little museum featuring paintings & sculpture about "Men at Work." The top floor has a delightful outdoor garden area. I found the other three floors of artwork to be fascinating, captivating. This place is well worth a visit. We spent 1 1/2 enjoyable hours there.

The museum is well maintained by the Milwaukee School of Engineering, and has free parking.

What a wonderful surprise. We enjoyed this museum quite a bit. While the focus of the collection is narrow, it is exceptional and well curated.

It is a unique museum which showing the history of different professions on pictures and sculptures by old and new artists. Some pictures with very good sense of humor, some are very serious and bring us to the ancient time. All pieces are done by very talented masters. You can enjoy sculpture garden on the roof of museum.
Sculptures are huge replicas from old statues. It should be interesting for future and former engineers, people who likes history and even for kids, who is still thinking about profession. Building itself has very interesting architectural style. Museum was created by mister Grohmann-engineer and collector and it was his wonderful gift to Milwaukee School of Engineering and to our city
