Tours

Plan now for a group tour to the Racine Art Museum (RAM), where guests will be introduced to the current exhibitions at both museum locations by trained docents. Experience art from a whole new perspective and learn all about the artists, the media, and the techniques involved in the creation of the artworks on display. Because most shows at RAM change three times each year and there are no galleries solely dedicated to the permanent collection, every visit is a fresh, new experience.

RAM's downtown location at 441 Main Street, Racine, Wisconsin, holds the largest and most significant contemporary craft collection in North America, with more than 9,000 objects from nationally and internationally recognized artists. RAM's mission is to elevate the stature of craft to fine arts by presenting ceramics, fibers, glass, metals, polymer, and wood alongside paintings and sculptures.

RAM's Wustum Museum of Fine Arts is located less than two miles from the downtown campus at 2519 Northwestern Avenue. Wustum has been home to nationally recognized annual exhibitions since the early 1980s. Each show is designed to emphasize the common ideas shared by local and regional participating artists.

Both campuses work together perfectly to create a wonderful art experience in Racine.
