Home to the world’s most comprehensive art collection dedicated to the evolution of human work. The Grohmann Museum is named in honor of Dr. Eckhart Grohmann, an MSOE Regent, Milwaukee businessman and avid art collector, who donated his Man at Work art collection to MSOE in 2001 and subsequently the funds to purchase, renovate and operate the museum that bears his name. Grohmann and his wife, Ischi, are longtime supporters of scholarships for MSOE students and also donated funds to purchase the property for MSOE’s Kern Center.
The museum’s steel and glass-domed entrance welcomes visitors to three floors of gallery space where a core collection is displayed as well as special themed exhibitions culled from the collection. The museum also has a spectacular rooftop sculpture garden, auditorium, docent library, store and vending café.
