Great location, interesting art and building. Was a nice short adventure for the boyfriend and I. He is into art and I am not, but this was a nice mixture, we were both entertained and had a good time

It is a lovely place to visit, not so much for children. Next time I would leave the granddaughter home.

My wife and I only got to see Villa Terrace. The only advice I have is that you leave yourself a bit of time to visit. There are many paintings, artifacts, etc. to examine. You even get to touch the artwork for the most part -- something my bride likes to do.

I enjoy the painting collection at the Charles Allis and many of the art exhibits that they bring in. And Villa Terrace is a treasure- like being in another time and place. I love to hear the stories of the family; one being how mom and the kids picked all the white and black rocks for the courtyard walkways.

From Our Editors

It's rare for museums to have cozy dining rooms, but the Charles Allis Art Museum wasn't always a museum. Earlier in the 20th century, it was businessman and arts patron Charles Allis's Tudor-style mansion. Allis bequeathed it to the public along with his massive art collection, though, and nowadays, visitors can stop by to see pieces that span 2,000 years. Some highlights? Works by Winslow Homer, Classic antiquities, a large collection of Asian ceramics, plus rotating exhibits by local Wisconsin artists.

The Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum nestles in a historic mansion, too, albeit a different one. This one was built in the likeness of an Italian Renaissance villa in 1923, by architect David Adler. Its art spans a smaller period, from the 15th century through to the 18th. Visitors can browse wrought-iron work by Cyril Colnik, and explore a formal, outdoor Renaissance garden.
