Beautiful museum with various types of artwork. Great classes, Café, and shop. Love the summertime music on Thursday's, and the free monthly PBS movies. Best of all this place is donation sponsored so literally anyone can visit. Don't forget to check out the famous bathrooms while your there!

What a treasure Sheboygan has in the John Michael Kohler Arts Center. I took my mom and we had such a beautiful and inspiring time! I love all of the outsider artists, especially Loy Bowlin(it was his dentures on display and if you don’t have a transcendent experience upon witnessing them you have no soul). Be sure to visit each of the restrooms! The front desk staff was extremely warm and helpful. I’ll be back soon!

Our group had a personalized tour and art project. The children decorated art journals and they had a great time!

I took a trip to the John Michael Kohler Arts Center abd I had a blast! All of the exhibits were very entertaining. Go there now to see an interactive exhibit of sorts. I will say no more so you can have a full experience yourself. Currently there is a artist who paints signs there. I was quite interesting to learn the history of hand painted signs. Hope you can make it there!

A wonderful exhibit. Eugene Von Bruenchenhein was a very talented painter, poet and sculpture. He was also a photographer. Enjoyed the tour with a group from Sheboygan Visual Artists.
