With a focus on folk/outsider artists, this museum is loaded with fun and quirky art. Exhibits change, so you always get a bit of a surprise. Make a point of finding all the restrooms. . .each one is something special! There's a nice little cafe and a terrific museum as well.

It's a beautiful art museum that has local and worldly art displays. There are also art room activities for you to sign up and pay for. Amazing experience, my classroom of 5 year olds enjoyed themselves!

Went to a wedding here. The art was kind of cool. The security personnel were rude as can be. Learn some respect and remember there is a nice way to ask the first time.

I love that we have an art center in Sheboygan, however I feel it could be improved. I was scolded for moving a chair to sit down in, which is a common practice at most art centers so I was surprised. Also, the exhibits don't circulate a lot and most of it is student artwork.
