Do not miss visiting the Milwaukee Art Museum. The building itself is worth the visit alone. They have great shows and the Peg Bradley collection is very in depth. It's a must see!

We catch nearly all traveling exhibits at the MAM, almost always coupling our visit with a tour of some part of the permanent collection. I especially like the Haitian art collection. I highly recommend this MKE treasure.

I suggest outside. There are many vantage points. Across the street in the parking garage. At the restaurant nearby (Harbor House).

If you don't mind a very pleasant Milwaukee walk, you wouldn't have to. However, it is an option. Sorry for the delay in responding. I just saw your question now.
