Open daily. Always free.


The Chazen Museum of Art is open daily to campus and to the public. Admission is free.

We invite visitors of all backgrounds to step into a place of beauty, respite, inspiration and learning. Stop by for ten minutes between classes, or spend an hour in your favorite gallery.

The Chazen Café is located just inside the entrance to the museum at 750 University Avenue. Operated by the Wisconsin Union, the café offers a wide selection of hot and cold drinks, snacks, and lunch items.

In addition you’ll find a unique selection of retail items and gifts, many based on the museum’s permanent collection and traveling exhibits. All proceeds from retail items directly support the museum.

The galleries in the Elvehjem building are closed during renovation; offices, classrooms, and the Kohler Art Library in the Elvehjem building are open per their respective schedules.

The university’s current COVID-19 information is here.
