Milwaukee Museum of Art
Wisconsin was one of the missing states, I had been to every state around it, and never been to Wisconsin. So last May when we were in Chicago, we took the train to Milwaukee for lunch and little wander around. When I mentioned where I was going, people said you should see the art museum down on the water, the building is worth the visit. What can I say, besides, OMG! It is a spectacular example of modern architecture. The wings on it open and close, the lines and symmetry are spectacular. It is light filled and awe inspiring. Well worth the trip. They have a nice, mostly modern art collection,.
On the way back to the train station we stumbled across the incredibly active market, an old farmers market, reinvented as an urban market. Very nice. Move it a 1,000 miles south and I would consider living there.
