The Art Museum was the home Charles Allis of the Allis-Chalmers Corporation (agricultural and construction equipment). Him and his wife left the 1911 Tudor-style mansion and its art works to the city of Milwaukee. In 1998 a 1.4 million gift built the Margaret Rahill Great Hall addition, with Uihlein/Wilson Architects and kept with the Tudor-style. Margaret Rahill was the former curator.

Dale Kuntz, Milwaukee’s Mr. Movies does a movie series, films are shown on 16mm, reel-to-reel film so you see these films in their original glory on the big screen.
