Tourist spot where even locals like to go:

Milwaukee Art Museum

It opened only three years ago, but the wingspan of the Santiago Calatrava-designed Quadracci Pavilion is already an integral part of Milwaukee’s image. The expansion brought both a larger collection and greater interest from both visitors and residents, says Chris Davidian, senior director of marketing and communications. 

“I think Milwaukeeans continue to be very proud of the building - it’s among the top destinations in the city,” she says. “I think it put Milwaukee on the map in a different kind of way.”
