We went in one day as we were walking downtown. We were surprised at the limited art on display and the very large special art collection that was just passing through. Good to call ahead if you can to see what collection is in town.

Operating on an apparently tight budget, the Racine Art Museum is worth an occasional 30 minute visit. Visitors won't see any famous artists here, but may be surprised to see imaginative and primarily local talented individuals' works. The quality of the shows, as well as...More

Be sure to read the brochure or you will miss 3/4s of the magic. A simple "neat" brooch to the tourist's eye is suddenly amazing when you realize it is made of belly button casts and lip imprints. Loved the"Go For Baroque" display.
