In the past, The Eisner has had free admission during Gallery Night, which is coming up this week. They also are a hub for 3rd Ward events throughout the year (WMSE's "Food Slam" fundraiser is held there).

I expect a write up of Gallery Night this Friday! :D

I have been meaning to go there, but haven't been yet. Looks very cool!

Hey Jeffery-

You’re absolutely right. My friend who works for FUEL Milwaukee hosted a social at The Eisner a while back. Also, I’m pretty sure admission is still free on Gallery Nights, yet I always forget to stop by...

I'm not sure if I'll be going to Gallery Night this Friday. But, I did go last October and wrote a little recap. If I make it there this weekend, I'll be sure to share my experience…since it's expected. ;)

Take care.

OK, you are correct the museum is FREE for gallery night and so are a few others...

They also have a trolley ride to take you around to the museums. A kids DREAM! Thanks for posting and those that commented!!

You're right! All of the galleries are free and many offer complimentary beer, wine and hors d'oeuvre.

The trolley is also excellent if you don't want to worry about finding parking. I took it when I went last summer for the "Project Lela" competition during Gallery Night.

Also, here's a link to my fall Gallery Night post. It will give you a feel for what goes on in the Third Ward as you browse each gallery and hop from shop to shop (all of the Third Ward stores have extended hours too).

It's a great way to spend a Friday or Saturday night (or Saturday afternoon if you want to bring the kids). You have the opportunity to mingle, sightsee, peruse new shops and witness some great local and regional art. Just about everything is free, so check it out!
