A MULTICULTURAL WORLD FOUND IN WISCONSIN
Wisconsin’s history, ingenuity and surrounding natural beauty have only encouraged our hunger for making a mark on the world. From Frank Lloyd Wright pushing the convention of design from architecture to art to the birth of Georgia O’Keeffe’s American Modernism, Wisconsinites live to aspire, inspire and express themselves in a way that connects them to the rest of the world through music, art and more.
Our culture goes beyond simple entertainment; it’s what brings us together, shares our unique stories and allows us to understand other perspectives. Our creations take us to places across the globe—without stepping foot outside—and allow us to laugh, learn and empathize. It’s what makes a difference in Wisconsin and the world.

MY WISCONSIN STORY
Our residents are some of the happiest and most ambitious people in the nation—but don’t just take our word for it. Take theirs.
“Milwaukee is much, much hipper than visitors expect. The cost of living versus the caliber of cultural activities is off the scales. And the city is so diverse—there’s a large mix of Mexican, Southeast Asian, Indian, and African American populations—and I think that keeps our dining, music and cultural options more varied and on par with many larger cities.”View All Stories
