This is it! The final days of the Summer of CHINA. These extraordinary exhibitions of Chinese art and culture, including The Emperor’s Private Paradise: Treasures from the Forbidden City closes on Sunday. This really is your last chance to see these never-before-seen objects.

Need more? On Thursday, September 8, the Museum opens its tribute to the Quadracci Pavilion and Burke Brise Soleil, celebrating its ten-year anniversary. Building a Masterpiece: Santiago Calatrava and the Milwaukee Art Museum is a look back at how the Museum project developed, with models, drawings, watercolors, and photographs submitted by YOU! That’s right – this is your chance to show your stuff at the Museum and enter to win a digital camera.

Now you have two reasons to get to the Museum this week – and no excuses not to!

Re “No excuses not to” … Is “Summer of CHINA” sold out? The reason I ask is that when I click on the Purchase Tickets link, I do not see any mention of this exhibit.

Paul – Thanks for the comment. If you click on “purchase tickets” you get sent to the general admission ticket page, which allows you to buy tickets for the Summer of CHINA series. There are no “special exhibition” up-charges at the Milwaukee Art Museum. One ticket gets you into the entire Museum and all its featured exhibitions.

I hope that helps, and I hope to see you at the Museum this weekend!


Thanks, Kristin. That does help. I am hoping to attend the exhibit this final weekend. About the “General Admission” tickets, I know they are good for one day only, but do I have to specify in advance which day I plan to attend when I order online? Thanks in advance.

Paul – Our ticketing system allows you to buy a ticket for a specific day. Or, you can purchase your tickets when you arrive. I recommend getting to the Museum early on whichever day you choose. It will be a busy weekend.

Hope that helps!
